Right at Home, one of the most trusted names in home care services, has selected the Institute for Professional Care Education (IPCed) as a preferred vendor to provide online training for employee state compliance and professional development.
Right at Home has consistently been a top-rated home care service provider due, among other things, to their unique Right at Home University and CERT Program. Right at Home University – the educational arm of the Right at Home Caregiver Education Retention and Training Program (CERT Program) – offers Right at Home employees a specialized plan for training and education while their customers derive the highest standard of care. From training to help develop caregivers’ skills overall to training on dealing with specific situations and diseases, Right at Home University offers a one-of-a-kind approach to educating and retaining quality Right at Home employees.
Right at Home’s partnership with IPCed fits well with their focus on training and quality care. The IPCed partnership presents a new initiative to expand compliance training opportunities for franchise offices. Right at Home has selected IPCed because they clearly understand the needs of home care business owners and share a passion for raising the standard of care in the industry.
“IPCed’s focus on strengthening the quality of care in our industry comes through clearly in the courses they offer,” says Michelle Koester, Director of Organizational Learning for Right at Home. “We both agree that caregiver training is paramount to providing high-quality care and the best in-home care services.”
“We’re thrilled about our new relationship with Right at Home,” says Sharon K. Brothers, CEO of IPCed. “We bring an extensive level of experience as owners and operators of senior care businesses, so we know the intricate details and challenges of every minute of every day – and with Right at Home’s expertise in home care, together we can significantly impact job satisfaction, client and family satisfaction, and ultimately the company’s bottom line.” Brothers notes that Right at Home’s commitment to staff training significantly strengthens their competitive advantage as providers of in-home care.
The Institute for Professional Care Education is a training and certification company focusing exclusively on the elder care population. The company includes the widely utilized aQuire Training Solutions division of online courses, Medifecta Healthcare Training for DVD and instructor resources, and EasyCEU.com for nationally accredited continuing education courses for leadership-level professionals in the field.
“Our company has experienced explosive growth in the past few years,” notes Brothers, “due in part to a growth in the caregiving needs of the country, but also due to our strong reputation in the field of training and certification. Families and caregiving professionals recognize that training excellence is essential to getting the level of care they want for their loved ones and their clients.”
Right at Home received recognition in Entrepreneur Magazine’s Franchise 500, Inc., Magazine’s 5000 fastest-growing private companies, Franchise Business Review’s (FBR) 50 for franchisee satisfaction, and FBR’s Top 100 Franchises for Veterans under Senior Care.
