Health care aides (HCAs) are in high demand in Winnipeg, and across most of Canada. Our rapidly aging population and dwindling health care budgets have long-term care facilities bursting at the seams.

Meanwhile, many seniors are opting to stay in their own homes for longer, creating a need for trained health care aides who can assist them to live safely on their own.

If you're looking for a career in healthcare that doesn't require years of training, but involves challenging, meaningful work—becoming a health care aide is an ideal option.

It's always really exciting to catch up with Herzing grads, and see how much their lives have changed since finishing school, and starting a brand new career.

Health Care Aide graduate, Sheri Richard, is a great example. She switched career paths later in life, when she could no longer find work in her field, and needed a new direction.

Sheri knew she wanted to help people, so she started looking around for quick training options. A 5-month Health Care Aide Diploma was an ideal fit.

And even though she has 3 children and a very busy schedule, Sheri took the leap, and started the program. Turns out, it was the best decision she ever made.

Here's what she told us about heading back to school, starting her Health Care Aide career, and where she's working now.
