A Student's Story

Making a difference was what motivated Stacie Short to enroll in Home Care Partners Training Institute to earn her certification as a home care aide.

Stacie's son was in a terrible accident which left him a paraplegic. After living through the difficulties of arranging appropriate care for him, Stacie wanted to be able to help others who really needed care.

Her compassion for people was obvious in class, and after completing the course, she was offered a position at Home Care Partners this spring.

Although she had only been working as an aide for a short while, she soon observed that one of her clients appeared withdrawn. Her keen observation, ability to gain the client’s trust, and communicating with her supervisors resulted in getting emergency assistance for the client in a life-threatening situation.
