The 4th edition of Hartman Publishing’s best-selling home health aide training textbook, Providing Home Care: A Textbook for Home Health Aides, is here! We listened carefully to thousands of instructors who shared with us what they want in a home health aide training textbook.

The textbook retained all of the elements that customers valued:

  • Content that reflects state and federal training requirements, OSHA regulations, and current CDC guidelines
  • Beautifully illustrated chapters organized around learning objectives
  • Clearly-marked procedures and color tabs for easy location of material
  • An accessible reading level, perfect for the many different types of students in today's classroom

And was updated with these things to reflect customers' needs:

  • Newly-released information about the USDA’s MyPlate, as well as more information about special diets
  • Updated material about Alzheimer’s disease and infection prevention
  • Reorganized chapters have the common diseases chapter following the anatomy and physiology chapter (in addition, diseases are now grouped under their body system to reinforce a body systems approach)
  • Expanded section on death and dying
  • “Green” material that discusses ways to be environmentally friendly
  • New photographs

Designed to help students review what they have learned from reading the textbook, the workbook is organized around Learning Objectives, which work like a built-in study guide. Multiple choice, true/false, crosswords, word searches, critical thinking scenarios, and other activities test the student’s knowledge of each chapter.


Our skills videos help prepare students for their clinical skills testing. Upon adoption, we provide easy web access for instructors and their students—no codes, no extra charge, and no cutoff dates.  For more information about Hartman’s new skill videos, please click here.
