Often times, caregivers are thrust into working in the home of seniors with little to no training and few resources available to learn the ropes of being an effective caregiver.
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) June 18, 2013
myCNAjobs announces the addition of new resources to their growing database of free downloads, articles, and tips to the Caregiver Resources Center.
As more caregivers enter the workforce to care for the 10,000+ retiring baby boomers each day, the need for caregiver training and professional caregiver job resources has never been greater. myCNAjobs, the fastest growing caregiver and CNA job community, recently launched the first-ever free resource center for caregivers seeking professional work within agencies, assisted living communities, hospitals, etc and is pleased to announce new weekly additions that can be accessed free-of-charge.
"Caregivers, homemakers, and certified nursing assistants are an underserved population," says Brandi Kurtyka, Chief Marketing Officer of myCNAjobs. "Often times, caregivers are thrust into working in the home of seniors with little to no training and few resources available to learn the ropes of being an effective caregiver."
As the industry continues to be plagued by high caregiver turnover, the need for quality caregiver resources and training is critical. There's a direct correlation between education and caregiver burnout, one of the biggest contributors to the 50%+ turnover rate facing the homecare industry.
Each week, new resources are added based on feedback from thecaregiver community. Current resources include:
- Live-In Caregiver Job Guide
- In The Trenches: A Caregiver & CNA Interview Guide Built By Industry Experts
- Caregiver & CNA Pay Guide
- HomeCare Caregiver Duties Booklet
- Caregiver Connect; A Forum to Connect with other professional caregivers
