Your mental health is part of your overall health. If stress becomes too much to handle, using your mental health benefits included in your health coverage is a meaningful way to improve your mental health and your life. Hear two stories of how Home Care Aides improved their lives by using mental health benefits. Using your mental health benefits is a way Care Begins With You.
While you provide high-quality care to others, it can feel like there's little time to take care of yourself. It can be hard to make an appointment with your Primary Care Provider (PCP), complete your health profile, or even exercise. Read the stories of Home Care Aides - just like you - about how their health and lives improved when they began caring for themselves as fully as they cared for others.

The SEIU Healthcare NW Training Partnership's Advanced Home Care Aide Apprenticeship program is featured on the U.S. Department of Labor's website as an example of the potential for apprenticeships: "Ensuring we have enough quality home care aides...will continue to be a challenge that we must confront as a society. Each day, 8,000 people in America turn 65, and Washington state alone will need to train approximately 440,000 home care workers by 2030 to meet this growing demand."
Six new online continuing education courses on providing consumer-directed care for common medical conditions are available now. Please refer to your training standards to determine how much CE you are required to take.
