What training materials are used for senior caregivers?
Caring for seniors involves assisting with physical and emotional needs along with practical household scheduling and maintenance. State laws require caregivers to understand how to identify elder abuse and to maintain privacy according to the Health Information Privacy and Portability Act (HIPPA).
Understanding how to record Care Plan notes and follow guidelines for daily activities allows professional caregivers working in the home to deliver the same high quality care as seniors in care communities.
Basic Caregiver Training incorporates the senior care training materials as outlined by the national association of home care and as passed into legislation in certain states.

- Sample Care Plan Notes
