Objectifs du programme

Home care assistance students are trained to provide basic care and services to persons of all ages who are sick or who have physical or mental disabilities on the basis of a care plan. This involves offering the basic care that they are trained to provide, helping clients carry out their everyday activities, helping them organize their living environment, ensuring clients’ safety and intervening in crisis or emergency situations. Students also learn to help clients integrate and socialize in individual or community activities. All of these tasks require establishing a relationship of trust with clients and those close to them. Home care attendants also receive training in providing care and services in the home. They help vulnerable or at-risk clientele carry out everyday domestic activities, such as preparing meals. They also advise clients on their lifestyle habits and provide parenting support, if applicable. The goal is to meet the general needs of clients, to help them compensate for their disabilities, to maintain and promote their autonomy, to accompany and support them in their daily and domestic lives, while taking into account any family or social problems that could interfere.

Préalables fonctionnels

Une personne qui a atteint l’âge de 18 ans peut être admise à un programme d’études menant à un Diplôme d’études professionnelles (DEP) sur la base des préalables fonctionnels. Ces préalables fonctionnels, prescrits pour une personne qui a atteint l’âge de 18 ans à la date de début de fréquentation déclarée dans le programme d’études professionnelle sont : la réussite du test de développement général (TDG) et l’obtention et la réussite des épreuves relatives aux préalables spécifiques en langue d’enseignement et en mathématique, s’il y a lieu.

Ce tableau indique les nouveaux codes de cours de la formation de base commune (FBC) et de la formation de base diversifiée (FBD) exigés pour les préalables spécifiques en langue d’enseignement et en mathématique pour le programme d’études visé. Dans le contexte où les nouveaux codes de cours de la FBC et de la FBD sont en implantation progressive, on indique entre parenthèses les anciens codes de cours toujours valides. Le code de cours équivalent en formation générale des jeunes est également indiqué dans ce tableau. Lorsqu’un DEP n’exige pas de préalables spécifiques en langue d’enseignement ou en mathématique, un (-) figure dans les cellules visées. Il est à noter que les préalables fonctionnels ne s’appliquent pas pour les programmes d’attestation de spécialisation professionnelle (ASP).
