I took a two week course for learning to become a home health aide with “Holy Redeemer Home Health & Hospice”. I spent $140.00 for books, and gave two weeks of my time that was unpaid. The class was all day, and then you received a lot of homework to do in the evening. There were tests every day, and the academic portion of the course was pretty intense. I received 100% on the final exam all the same. The other part of the course involved hands on learning practicing helping the client to use the toilet, use a walker, adjust a catheter, and bathing procedures. This part of the “training” was pretty minimal. The final exam was giving the patient a bed bath, changing the bed while the patient was still in it,(using a dummy) and positioning the patient. This was a very tricky procedure, and also involved many steps. You really had to be the kind of person who was good at catching on to learning things quickly and easily, because the help and training was minimal. I did not even have the chance to practice because the other students crowded me out of getting a bed with a dummy to practice with! On exam day I floundered around trying to give the dummy a bed bath and change the bed without hardly any training under my belt. Needless to say, I royally flunked the practical part of the exam. The administrative woman who had been monitoring my “test” took me into the back office. At first she was nice, but then started a rather long list of negative and berating remarks about what I did, that went on and on. She ended the session by saying that they haven’t given up on me, and would possibly call about re-taking the test. Ha. Never got any call. All in all, I wasted $140.00, and two weeks of my time and energy, when I could have been earning money somewhere. I did not receive any certificate, and worst of all, no JOB, which I really needed. It will be on my record that I did not pass the course or get my certificate, which makes me look like an idiot. Terrible course—a waste of time.
