Caregiver education has evolved to become state-specific as senior caregiving services have moved to the home. Senior care has become it's own industry with both state and federal regulations which now include training certification requirements.
Senior care education includes learning about:
- Communicating with Seniors
- Age-related Illnesses such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease
- Infection Control and Environmental Safety
- Emergency Game Plan
- Safe Transfers and Assistance with Activities of Daily Living
- Personal Care and Toileting
These are some of the basics that are typically required by each state's health department or social services department across the U.S.A. Senior home care education requirements
have not been passed into a federal law. The national association switched gears and began promoting their members to present legislation state-by-state to be passed into law. More than half of the 50 states have passed caregiver training mandates.
Find the state caregiver training
requirements in your state and take an online training course to the learn the basic caregiving skills.

Caregiving jobs are plentiful for many reasons. Seniors don't plan ahead for senior care needs, which can arise suddenly after a medical emergency. Many American still do not realize that caregiving can provide ongoing employment with a professionally licensed senior care and because of this, do not pursue these jobs. Others think they must be a nurse to perform professional caregiving positions.
Right now, there is a shortage of senior caregivers in the U.S.A. and many legal immigrants, or first-Americans, thankfully, have joined our workforce as caregivers. We are so very grateful at Caregiverlist that we have this diversity of employees to help fill senior care company's job openings.
After the knee-replacements, heart by-passes, and age-related illnesses, seniors require caregiving services in order to maintain living a safe quality of life each day. Their families often no longer live nearby.
Caregiverlist includes many first-Americans, or "immigrants" on our job list and caregiver training registry. They are all here legally and employed as caregivers by licensed senior home care agencies. These companies must verify all employees by conducting background checks, finger-printing and in some states, home health registry verification.
Caregiving is hard work. More caregivers are needed. Because also, you know, some people are tough to care for and require multiple caregivers to rotate on a weekly schedule to maintain staffing.
Gerald F. Seib's article in this week's Wall Street Journal, shares some numbers to highlight why having more caregivers must be considered as immigration policies are updated.
- 1 in 4 Direct-care Workers are First-Americans which means 860,000 immigrants fill these caregiving jobs now
- This number has grown to 24% in 2015, from 20% in 2005
- In New York, California, New Jersey and Florida, 40% of the caregiver workers are immigrants
- Among these immigrant caregiver workers nationwide, 56% are citizens by naturalization
Not having enough workers has the potential to drive up care costs.
Do you know someone who could work as a part-time or full-time senior caregiver? No experience is required and they can obtain online training for all of the beginning caregiver skills. Please refer them to the Caregiverlist' Career Center to learn more and submit a job application.
Senior caregivers working as professionals in most states are required to have annual training. This just helps to make sure the caregiver has continued to maintain their knowledge of caregiving skills. In addition, caregivers are able to advance their caregiving options and career by demonstrating knowledge in additional areas.
