New Caregiver Training Center Addresses Major Gap in Healthcare

September 3, 2012

With the average home health aide paid under $10/hour and many family caregivers paid nothing at all, myCNAjobs recently launched a low-cost caregiver training center offering comprehensive online modules to learn the nature of a caregiver job.

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) September 03, 2012

Demand for in-home caregivers — both professional and familial — is soaring. As 78 million Americans born between 1946 and 1964 grow older and states attempt to save money by moving people out of more costly options like nursing homes, hiring a qualified and trained caregiver will continue to grow more challenging.

The lack of training for caregivers is a major gap in health care. Most family caregivers never have any formal caregiver training. Further, many professional caregivers and home health aides aren´t required to complete formalized training unless requested by an employer.

“Without any caregiver training, how are caregivers supposed to know how to offer a pill to someone that has trouble swallowing, transfer a frail person from a bed, or even effectively communicate with a senior suffering from memory loss,” questions the Founder of myCNAjobs, a training and career hub for caregivers.

The U.S. Department of Labor projects that home health aide jobs will be among the fastest-growing careers over the next ten years, adding over one million positions.

With the average home health aide paid under $10/hour and many family caregivers paid nothing at all, myCNAjobs recently launched a low-cost caregiver training center offering comprehensive online modules to learn the nature of a caregiver job.

“It´s a program accessible to everyone,” adds myCNAjobs.

The caregiver training center boasts 80+ modules for $47 and includes courses for families, non-certified caregivers, home health aides, and certified nursing assistants. It´s a revolutionary concept that allows caregivers to learn 24/7 on their own terms. For professional caregivers, a formal caregiver certificate is awarded upon 80% successful course completion — valid for CEUs in many states.
