Home Care Assistance, North America’s leading provider of in-home care for seniors, is excited to announce the launch of Home Care Assistance University (HCAU). The transformative e-learning platform is designed to serve as the central platform to provide cutting-edge training and development, test retention of new material and provide certification for successful completion of courses. HCAU provides Home Care Assistance caregivers with the education they need in order to deliver the gold standard of care to the company’s clients. The courses in HCAU reflect the company’s innovative approach to client care and employee development as well as their mission to change the way the world ages. Caregivers will receive education on a wide spectrum of topics ranging from advanced topics in dementia care to healthy nutrition and meal preparation to post-hospitalization care.
"We are offering a new model of caregiver education that is unparalleled in the senior care industry and ensures a consistent, high standard of care across all Home Care Assistance locations. The e-learning platform allows us to standardize and provide ongoing training for caregivers so that they have the expertise and confidence to provide the very best care to our clients," said Lily Sarafan, President of Home Care Assistance. "Our mission is to change the way the world ages; by investing in our caregivers, we are not only creating a strong network of compassionate and dedicated individuals who strive to deliver outstanding care to our clients but are also promoting a culture of lifelong learning around healthy longevity and quality of life.”
Sample HCAU courses include The Balanced Care Method, Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care, Post-Hospitalization Care and Live-In Care trainings. New courses will be added on a regular basis to reflect current trends and research in senior care, health and aging; all courses are designed to promote the company's shared vision of healthy mind, body and spirit. Home Care Assistance University is yet another reason why thousands of families and health care professionals choose Home Care Assistance as their trusted senior care partner.
Early response from caregivers and company employees has been overwhelmingly positive. Many of the caregivers who piloted HCAU described being not only impressed with the depth of knowledge each course imparts but also are pleased with the company’s clear efforts to promote their ongoing training and development.
