Professional Caregiver Training Delivers Quality Senior Caregiving Skills

Senior caregiving is not like child care – just ask any professional senior caregiver. Now senior caregivers can obtain professional caregiver training through an online caregiver certification training program.

The majority of seniors prefer to age-in-place, or stay in their own home, as they age. This means they will usually require senior caregiving services to assist them. Insurance actuaries suggest American seniors plan for needing at least 2 years of senior care services during their retirement years. As hundreds of senior home care agencies have opened their doors in the last 10 years, including more than 20 new franchise corporations, quality senior care has become a priority. Because senior care services are only as good as the caregiver providing the care, caregiver training certification assists caregivers to deliver better quality care.

Both families and professional caregivers will be able to provide higher quality care by receiving specialized senior care training. In addition, family members will better be able to manage the emotional aspects of caregiving by understanding the aging process better.

“Many times a senior will immediately become healthier and much more accommodating of a family member’s requests after professional senior caregiving services have begun,” says Julie Northcutt, CEO and founder of Caregiverlist.com. Northcutt also founded a senior home care agency which she sold to a national senior care company, caring for more than 500 seniors. She sold the agency to focus full-time on Caregiverlist.com, delivering customized online tools for professional caregivers.

Family members and professional senior caregivers now can obtain 10-hours of online training for certification as a professional caregiver. The training meets the basic requirements established for senior caregiver training by state licensing boards. The training includes an audio component, to facilitate retention of the information. A quiz is provided for each training module.

The caregiver training modules include:

• Duties of a Caregiver
• Communicating with Others
• Observation, Reporting and Recording
• Providing Personal Care
• Promoting and Maintaining Good Mobility
• Elimination and Toileting
• Infection Control
• Environmental Hazards and Safety
• Basic First Aid
• Understanding Elder Abuse

Once the Caregiver Certification Course has been completed and quizzes passed (at 80% success rate on all quizzes), a certificate of Completion is granted and maintained in the Caregiver Certification database and can be printed by the caregiver to show employers.
