Tech-enabled home care is a strategic imperative for HouseWorks, and CareAcademy fills a critical gap in providing agencies like HouseWorks with the tools to provide effective and affordable training for their workforce at scale.
BOSTON (PRWEB) May 06, 2019
CareAcademy, the home care industry’s first mobile-friendly caregiver training platform, today announced that HouseWorks has selected CareAcademy as their provider of choice for caregiver training and certification. HouseWorks, one of the largest private-pay home care companies in the United States, specializes in providing high-touch, technology-enabled in-home care services that meet the growing needs of their Greater Boston and Philadelphia Area clients.
HouseWorks provides ongoing skills-based training to caregivers as part of a comprehensive plan to ensure that clients are receiving the best care. HouseWorks starts by hiring only a small portion of its caregiver applicants. Once a caregiver is hired, HouseWorks engages in continuous evaluation and provides ongoing training and professional development to cultivate skilled and trustworthy caregivers. CareAcademy will serve as the platform to deliver interpersonal and technical skills training in support of HouseWorks' in-home care programs. This partnership helps strengthen HouseWorks' approach to disruptive innovation by investing in the people and systems that will ensure best-in-class service standards, challenge the status quo and deliver the quality care that clients deserve.
“Roughly two-thirds of the population will be over the age of 65 by 2030, and when you dive into specific communities, the number of seniors age 60 and over will double what it is today. HouseWorks is in a great position to provide differentiated services for seniors to age in place. We’re thrilled to be the provider of choice to help HouseWorks scale their recruitment and retention program by training and upskilling caregivers to meet the growing need,” says Helen Adeosun, CEO of CareAcademy.
Tech-enabled home care is a strategic imperative for HouseWorks, and CareAcademy fills a critical gap in providing agencies like HouseWorks with the tools to provide effective and affordable training for their workforce at scale. CareAcademy will provide HouseWorks with a comprehensive curriculum that combines interpersonal and condition-specific training that is accessible to caregivers on-demand using any device. CareAcademy classes promote active learning, and leverages bite-sized video to aid in caregiver engagement and knowledge retention. Online quizzes, assessments, reminders, and customer support all contribute to a high-class completion rate that averages over 90%. Additionally, agencies can track individual caregiver training progress, certifications, and continuing education to ensure compliance with greater ease.
“HouseWorks is committed to becoming the employer of choice for caregivers,” commented HouseWorks’ Founder and CEO Andrea Cohen. “We are making significant investments to attract and retain the best possible caregivers to serve the needs of our clients. Providing skills-based training to our caregivers enriches their interactions with clients and their families, which ultimately results in better care.” We know CareAcademy will continue to be a critical asset in HouseWorks’ ongoing training and professional development for caregivers.”
