Paid feeding assistants can be a huge benefit in long-term care facilities to assist residents during meal time. PFA's are trained to work with residents who have no complicated feeding problems with activities of eating and drinking. This course is hugely beneficial for individuals who are assisting in the care of loved ones at home as well.
