Caregiver Training for Private Duty Senior Caregivers

Senior caregivers are required to be trained and competent in specific skills now in many states in the U.S.A. California most recently passed legislation mandating a minimum of 10 hours of training for new caregivers followed by 5 hours of training each year. 

Caregiver training certification ensures the caregiver understands how to care for a senior and effectively manage age-related issues. Training for caregiving for a senior with Alzheimer's disease, for instance, will make a significant difference in the quality of the care. Even family members can benefit from training on how best to interact with a senior with memory loss.



Review the caregiver training requirements in your state and take the online basic caregiver training to meet the entry-level caregiving skill requirements.

Senior caregiving companies are constantly hiring part-time and full-time caregivers as few seniors plan ahead for senior care needs. Submit 1 job application to be considered for open caregiving jobs in your area by a licensed senior home care agency.
