CNA vs. PCA vs. HHA

  1. i just got hired to start training as a pca (personal care aide) for a home care agency and i'm wondering how this differs from cnas and hhas. i know cnas work more on the medical side and hhas do a lot with adls, so are pcas somewhere in the middle?

    does anyone here work in home care? do you like it? (pros/cons).

    This would depend upon the position titles at your company. I would ask for copies of the job descriptions of each, so that you can compare them.

    I think my company only has PCAs and they do stuff with toileting, bathing, self administration of meds etc. I was looking at the syllabus and that's the sort of thing it has.
