Red River College has launched the new Health Care Support Worker micro-credential course to help improve staffing and resident support in personal care homes and long-term care facilities across Manitoba.
The week-long, tuition-free course will train qualified individuals to work as Uncertified Health Care Aides (UHCAs) and create immediate employment opportunities for Manitobans including students currently enrolled in a health sciences faculty or program.
Sections are currently offered in Winnipeg, Selkirk, Steinbach, Winkler and Portage la Prairie beginning November 30.
This micro-credential focuses on supporting all members of the resident care team, assisting with resident care and support under the general supervision of a manager or nursing supervisor. This may include activities of daily living like mobility, feeding, bathing; assistance with activities or close observation of residents in need of constant care, including those who may wander; cleaning and maintenance of equipment as directed; stocking of supplies.
