Does anybody still teach it and is there still resource material out there. I have the books from when I took it, but I don't have course outline.

We have an Instrucor guide for Family Health Care as well as the Handbook. You can also get Caring for the Sick from Clerkenwell. There's another title recommended by SJA... it's "Being a Home Health Care Aide" or something like that. I can get publisher details if you like. (I'm just reciting these titles from memory, the document I have that refers to the titles is at the office)

The proper document names are:

"Being a Homemaker/Home Health Aide" by Elana Zucker, Brady Publishing (available at bookstores at a cost of $40-$50)

"Caring for the Sick" by St. John Ambulance (UK), St. Andrew's Ambulance Association, and the British Red Cross Society, Dorling Kindersley (available through St. John Stores in the UK at a cost of $15 Cdn)

I have also uploaded the BTS Standards and Reference Guide to it's own thread in Divisional Training Plans/Shares and it is quite helpful.

I just learnt home health care. But advice to the other divisions...If your gonna have a nurse teach it..find one with PERSONALITY. I remember last year when i learnt it...it was boring so boring that i skipped out on the last nite. You have to make it interesting..not just blah where you learn about making hospital beds and brushing teeth..Add some games in it to pratice so that way your learning and having fun.

Hey sask, when we did home health care, we actually went to the nursing home where mom works, since she was teaching it. We had our meetings there during the summer instead of at St. John House. Next time you take the HHC, try and do something fun like that, if it's possible. It's a lot more fun getting hands on experience than just talking about it.

Hey Erin, Thanks for the idea, Walter has been talking about doing it again for the new cadets and having the same person come in again. The nursing home in Fenelon is just down the road from where we are so it shouldnt be a problem getting there. Im gonna suggest it to him on Monday

Saskia, the cadets had such a good time. Being from the cadet division, it's hard to keep things interesting. We learned really quickly that this definitely keeps the interest level up. We also serve tea and toast to the residents now once a week to get the voluntary service proficiency for them. This way they get 2 proficiencies at the same time and have fun doing it.
