Provider Partners

The Area Agency on Aging values our dedicated provider partners.

A service provider is an established and qualified business contracted with Area Agency on Aging, PSA 2, to provide needed services to eligible older adults in our service area. Our services cover Champaign, Clark, Darke, Greene, Logan, Miami, Montgomery, Preble, and Shelby counties. Businesses contract with the Agency to deliver services through one or more programs. Each program varies in terms of services provided, rules for service delivery, and application process for new providers. Area Agency on Aging contracts with over 250 providers, including Assisted Living, Adult Day facilities, home-delivered meals, personal care, social work counseling, transportation, and more.

Workforce Shortage Initiative: Ohio Strong Personal Care Aide Training Program

A number of the older adults across Ohio needing help in order to live safely and comfortably in their own homes (and avoid the necessity of moving to a senior nursing facility) are currently unable to get the home health services they need because of a shortage of personal care aides. Unfortunately, older adults in our nine-county area in west central Ohio are not immune to this shortage, and we have seen the effects of this shortage in personal care aides increase over the last few years.

Dr. Kathy Stevens, a Del Mar Encore Fellow with The Dayton Foundation, initiated the #OhioStrongPCATraining program through the Agency on Aging, PSA 2 in 2020 to help address this shortfall by offering free CNA Training. The Agency now continues her work.

Help Continues to Be Needed

If you are interested in working in home health care, are compassionate and want to make a big difference in someone’s life, there are many home care provider agencies currently hiring personal care aides. If you’re not currently qualified to work in home care, the #OhioStrongPCATraining program is accessible to you with no cost to apply.

To apply, visit a home health provider that is partnered with the Agency. The provider will have an individual complete a commitment form and select a training site and class session. The provider will notify the Area Agency on Aging that the individual is an approved #OhioStrongPCATraining participant, noting which school and class session the individual will be attending. The individual is responsible to go to the training site and complete their registration to reserve their seat in class. 

Additional Information

  • The individual can choose any of the three training sites: Ally College, Faith Nurse Aide Training and Ohio Medical Career College.
  • All are state-approved CNA training courses and include the minimum of 75 hours of in-person instruction, 59 hours of classroom instruction, and 16 hours of clinical, hands-on training.
  • The training site will bill the Area Agency on Aging for training tuition costs.
  • Out of pocket expenses include background check, uniform/scrubs and TB test.
