Our Caregivers Receive Hands On Training and Mentoring
Some of our caregivers are Certified Nurse Assistants or Medical Assistants, however, these credentials are not a requirement for being a Right at Home caregiver in the state of Iowa. Other caregivers have had experience caring for elderly parents, for example, and then felt that becoming a professional caregiver would be good fit for them. Our younger caregivers are generally college students whose plan of study is in the health care field, most commonly nursing. We also have retired nurses who want to continue helping others and utilizing their skills but in a position that is flexible where they control how many hours are worked in a given week. Regardless of a caregiver’s background, we offer hands-on training and mentoring so he/she feels comfortable and confident providing assistance to clients. We also have an extensive library of online training modules in a variety of topics to better prepare our caregivers. These modules provide for ongoing training in addition to workshops and seminars held at the Right at Home office. And, we encourage our caregivers to stop in the office anytime to learn and practice techniques used to successfully care for someone in their home.
