A central feature of this course is the extensive section on meeting the care and comfort needs of clients with a diagnosis of dementia. Students also learn about care strategies for assisting other diverse client groups such as clients with a mental health diagnosis and clients with developmental delays and physical disabilities. Health care aides employed by home care agencies may have the opportunity to provide care for infants and children, and this course provides the information and skills needed to assist with these care assignments.
