Training and Continuing Education

Right at Home Training

Once you become a Right at Home caregiver, you'll go through an orientation process to learn our policies and procedures. And every time you're matched with a new client, you'll have an orientation on that client's Custom Care Plan and the specifics of their care. You'll also have continuous training both in-person and through Right at Home University to become the best caregiver possible.

Right at Home University is a web-based seminar series that covers a wide range of topics delivered throughout your career with Right at Home from their first day during the onboarding process and every month thereafter. You also have the opportunity to explore certain training topics in more depth.

  • Techniques on providing your clients with the best care possible
