Training and Ongoing Education
Our goal is to keep our aides educated and updated on the latest information and techniques to make the client/caregiver home care experience the best it can be. We provide in-house training with our local healthcare partners along with access to our online training portal.
Before going to a client, we talk to each caregiver, in great length, about what the requirements of the case are, the care plan, and our expectations. We always do a meet and greet on the first shift and always follow up with both the client and the caregiver after the shift.
We offer specialty training through our local healthcare partners including Hospice, ALS, Dementia, and Parkinson’s training.
