Test Your Aides on Depression with April’s In-Home Aides-Partners in Quality Care

As a benefit of membership, HCAF provides agencies with In-Home Aides-Partners in Quality Care, a monthly publication that addresses relevant topics for home health aides. Topics addressed in In-Home Aides-Partners in Quality Care have included quality, aging, safety, teamwork, falls prevention and more.

The April 2013 edition addresses depression, about which aides will learn the:

  • Common misconceptions of depression in the elderly
  • Signs and symptoms of depression
  • Causes of depression
  • What to do if you suspect depression in your client

Each edition of In-Home Aides-Partners in Quality Care is packed with useful information on the month’s topic as well as a post-test (answer key included) for home health aides so they can earn one hour towards the 12 hours-per-year Medicare requirement!

The current edition and past editions can be accessed on HCAF’s In-Home Aides-Partners in Quality Care webpage, which is only accessible to HCAF members by clicking here.
