Alpha Home Health Agency
Are you looking to become a home health care aide or want to continue your education and further your home health care knowledge? Alpha Home Health Agency offers training programs and certification for the community and current professionals so they can start, or continue their journey with home health care.
We offer different certifications, such as the medication certification, where an individual gets certified in how to pass medicine safely and correctly, how to give insulin, how to give tube feeds, and more, so that they can provide services to an individual with developmental delays and be able to do so safely.
Anyone can attend the course and complete it, and it will provide the same certification, whether they're a home health aide already or an individual from the community seeking further education.
Our courses are both in-person and online. Most of the courses can be taken online, but they do require some in-person skill sessions.
