Continuing Education & Training for Caregivers
Learning How to Provide the Best Home Care Services
We recognize the value caregivers bring, and having a team with compassionate, trained, and skilled caregivers is essential to providing high-quality home care to clients. We are passionate about providing ongoing resources to caregivers which will expand both their professional and personal development.
Homewatch CareGivers has established a National Brand Standard of Quality Care Education. This brand standard consists of a minimum of 12 hours of education annually in areas that best support employees providing caregiving services.
Caregivers develop their skills through:
- In-person learning to safely operate assistive devices, such as a mechanical lift, use of oxygen devices, and more.
- Learning directly from industry experts, healthcare providers, various organizations, or associations such as the Alzheimer’s Association.
- Online courses that teach how to safely provide care for those who have mobility issues and/or are at increased risk for falls.
Homewatch CareGivers University
Continuing education elevates the standard of care and provides a path to growth for caregivers. We have invested in a professionally developed online learning platform, Homewatch CareGivers University. Online learning offers flexibility through 24/7 access and a self-paced learning style to promote a great work-life balance. Courses go beyond home care to include a series that focuses on employee wellness and personal development. This way, we can ensure that caregivers are happy, healthy, and ready to help others.
