Caregiver Training for professionals and families is becoming more critical, as more Americans choose to stay in their homes in lieu of moving to senior communities.
“Becoming a professional caregiver or home health aide requires little to no formalized training,” says Brandi Kurtyka, Chief Marketing Officer for myCNAjobs, a caregiver training, job, and recruiting vehicle.
“Further, many families are thrust into a caregiving role without ever understanding what it means to be a caregiver and how to best care for a loved one,” adds Kurtyka.
Many of the reasons behind the lack of caregiver training boils down to one area: lack of time. Professional caregivers are feeling economic pressures to provide for their families and are hard pressed for extra hours in the day. Familial caregivers on the other hand are often juggling a full-time job, kids, and trying to figure out how to care for an aging loved one in the mean time.
To help alleviate these pressures, myCNAjobs recently launched an online caregiver training center offering robust, bite-sized training courses available 24/7.
“In just a couple of hours each week, caregivers can start to learn the basics of caregiving, how to promote and maintain mobility, diet and nutrition, and many other topics, while also honing communication skills to communicate more effectively with the elderly,” adds Kurtyka.
The training center offers 80+ modules. Each module can be started and stopped at anytime, offering complete flexibility. After 80% successful course completion, professional caregivers receive a caregiver certificate to leverage during caregiver interviews.
