Health Care Aide

Diploma 29 weeks

As Canada's population ages, the demand for health care aides continues to grow. If you're looking for a satisfying career helping others, CDI College's Health Care Aide program is for you. Students from this program go on to work with elderly patients, those with special needs, as well as patients living with mental health issues. Work environments include long-term care facilities, home health care agencies, retirement homes, residential care centres, hospices, and group homes.


The Health Care Aide program teaches students to identify and respond to patients' physical and emotional needs and to promote healthy physical and mental activity that is appropriate for each person. Students learn about medical terminology, human anatomy, chronic conditions, and palliative care. Other areas of study include accountable and responsible care, transfer techniques, wheelchair safety, mechanical lifting, and other care skills.



Students benefit from hands-on experience through a mandatory clinical placement.

My instructor helped me learn easier than any other teacher. She made sure that I understood everything before moving on and made me realize that this is what I wanted to do and that I can do it as well as she did.
