Caregiver Training Programs

Caregivers interested in obtaining additional training in caring for seniors can obtain certification as a nursing aide or home health aide and attend customized training programs in hospice care and memory loss care.

Nursing Aide training involves learning hands-on care techniques, such as how to safely transfer someone from a bed to a walker or wheelchair and back to a chair or toilet.  Nursing aide training also includes learning how to assist with all aspects of personal care including feeding, toileting, bathing and managing the emotional demands of caregiving.  Nursing aide programs are available through local community colleges, community programs and some hospitals and nursing homes.  You may find Certified Nursing Aide and Certified Home Health Aide programs in your area on Caregiverlist, along with their costs and admission requirements.

You may also purchase an online 10-hour caregiver training program for non-medical caregivers and receive a certificate of completion.

Many senior centers and associations for age-related illnesses, such as Parkinson's Disease and Alzheimer's Disease provide seminars and mini-training programs for both professional caregivers and family caregivers.

    I took a CNA course from a local community college in the '70s, receiving a top grade. I worked as an CNA in a hospital, nursing home and also as a home-health aide. I stopped working to raise my children and when most aides were "Grandfathered" into the new state requirements in the late '80s, I missed the boat. I have since taken the full seven-hour course on A.I.D.S at the same community college and received my certificate. Could I possibly take the state exam without having to take and pay for the CNA course again in order to be re-certified? Have there been other changes in the curriculum besides the inclusion of AIDs training since the late 1980's?
