DVS en Assistance in Health Care Facilities

Code :

Durée du programme : heures | mois


Description :

Patient assistants in health-care establishments, see to the welfare of people who are ill. These workers are employed in chronic-care or acute-care hospital facilities, geriatric centres, rehabilitation centres and psychiatric hospitals. They promote the comfort of the people under their care by helping them with meals, personal hygiene and mobility. In hospitals, patient assistants provide mainly basic care to help patients recover or maintain their health. In nursing homes or geriatric centres, they help the residents (who have often experienced a loss of autonomy) carry out their daily activities. This involves helping them dress, wash, eat, and get about. In all workplaces, however, patient assistants are also there to listen to patients, boost their morale, reassure them and bolster their self-confidence.
