Chicago, IL (PRWEB) October 02, 2012
With 8,000 Baby Boomers retiring each day, the demand for knowledgeable familial and professional caregivers is skyrocketing. With a severe workforce shortage projected over the next decade, caregiver training is becoming an essential component for professionals and families nationwide.
myCNAjobs recently launched an online caregiver training and certification center to help provide accessible training for non-medical caregivers and families across the country.
“We view the lack of credible caregiver training resources as a major gap in healthcare,” comments Brandi Kurtyka, Chief Marketing Officer for myCNAjobs, based in Chicago IL.
Many professional caregivers start their career with little to no training. Regardless of the specific areas of the caregiver field that caregivers pursue, caregiver training courses provide the insight needed to kick-off and grow a career grounded in an understanding of the basics. Caregivers seeking caregiver certification, obtain a caregiver certificate at the end of each course upon successful completion.
Further, most familial caregivers are thrust into a caregiving role without ever knowing what a family caregiver role entails and how to properly care for an elderly family member, especially if diagnosed with a memory loss disease like Alzheimer’s.
“Without proper caregiver training, how are caregivers supposed to know how to transfer a frail person from a bed to a sofa with limiting risk for injury, offer a pill to someone that has a difficult time swallowing, or effectively communicate with a senior suffering from Dementia,” adds Kurtyka.
The new caregiver training center boasts 80+ online modules, accessible 24/7 for a flat fee of $47.00. For a fraction of the cost of other caregiver training and caregiver certification programs, caregivers get access to top-notch modules, videos, and development tools to learn and grow their knowledge base in all aspects of caregiving.
