Why Assisted Living Patient Care Technician with Billing (CPCT)?

Assisted living facilities give older adults help with daily care while maintaining as much of their independence as possible. Assisted living gives residents security and privacy in a homelike environment. A career as an Assisted Living Patient Care Technician (CPCT) puts you alongside the doctors and other health care professionals providing direct patient care.

CPCTs provide basic patient services, including bathing, feeding, toileting and transportation. They acquire and distribute patient care supplies, change sheets, perform safety checks, take electrocardiogram (EKG) readings and perform blood procedures.

CPCTs usually are employed in:

  • Assisted living facilities
  • In-home hospice care
  • Nursing care facilities

Meditec’s Assisted Living Patient Care Technician with Billing program will prepare you for a bright future. As the population ages, the demand for compassionate and hard-working Patient Care Technicians will continue to rise.
