Caregiver Training Schools

Senior caregivers may begin their careers first as a caregiver for a family member, neighbor or friend.  They develop many of their skills on the job.

Caregivers working for quality senior home care agencies must first complete a training program and orientation.  This training can be from 1 hour to 20 hours and more and more states are enacting legislation to require training hours for even non-medical, companion caregivers.  In addition, most senior care companies provide on-going training opportunities for caring for seniors with specific conditions and training for providing care for each of the types of memory loss.

Senior care briefs provide information on caring for specific conditions, such as a stroke or hip replacement.  You may also view caregiver training videos to learn how to transfer a senior safely and manage care needs for a senior with memory loss. 

Certified Nursing Aide training programs provide classroom and field training for caregivers to learn the skills necessary to manage for all the personal care and emotional care needs of seniors.  C.N.A. training programs will enable students to pass the state certification exam and begin working at a nursing home, hospital, hospice or home care agency when hands-on care is required.

You may explore training opportunities and take a free sample nursing aide test to find out about the skills taught in a training program.  Ongoing employment opportunities are available for certified nursing aides as the large baby boomer generation ages  - living longer and requiring assistance with care. , ,
