Benefits of Becoming a CNA

Ensure your loved one is cared for safely, appropriately and with your personal touch.

The Family CNA Program creates a reliable approach to care in the home.

Creates care consistency and continuity to promote stability for patients and their families.

The Family CNA Program provides family-centered, ongoing support.


Your loved one might qualify for CNA care if...

  • They have a chronic diagnosis/care needs
  • Hands-on assistance is required to safely complete activities of daily living such as bathing, dressing, feeding, grooming, toileting/incontinence care, transfers or repositioning
  • All requirements of care are met as defined in the Pediatric Assessment Tool (PAT)

By applying with a home health agency and going through their hiring and onboarding process.

Hours are based off the medical need of the patient but on average a caregiver can work at least 30 hours a week. Hours for the medically fragile patient could be more but will depend on each state and how they adequate the hours base off medical need.

Medically complex diagnosis examples include, but are not limited to:

  • Mechanical Intervention
  • G-Tube
  • BiPap
  • Trach & Vent Care
