Learning Never Stops: ComfortCare Homes Caregivers Ongoing Education
ComfortCare Homes caregivers receive comprehensive senior care training in Wichita, KS
The decision to bring a caregiver into your home or have a senior parent move into an assisted living facility is a challenging task. For families with loved one’s suffering from memory illnesses like dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, there are many factors to consider. You want your senior loved one to feel comfortable, supported, safe and happy. Caregivers should be friendly, highly-skilled, and educated in the specialized care needs of seniors with Alzheimer’s or dementia.
Why Continuing Education is Important
At ComfortCare Homes, we understand that you and your family want the best care for your senior loved one. While continuing education has been standard practice for our caregivers since the beginning, this year we began a new comprehensive training plan.
ComfortCare Homes partnered with local career training, employee assistance, and senior service organizations to create ongoing education opportunities for caregivers. Our staff began this training in August and will continue to develop their skills in the coming year. Not only does improved continuing education enhance care for our Residents, it also shows that we support and believe in our caregiving staff.
Our Training Partners
Advancements in Alzheimer’s and dementia care continue to be made as medical professionals learn more about the signs, symptoms, and triggers of the diseases. ComfortCare Homes provide senior care specifically for those adults with memory care needs. We work with many local and national organizations to ensure our staff is up to date on the latest Alzheimer’s and dementia care techniques.
In August 2017, our staff had the opportunity to learn from a variety of local organizations. The training completed by our care staff surpasses the requirements and expectation of their state certification requirements.
Three of these partners included Allied Health Career Training, LLC, EMPAC, and Senior Care Pharmacy. Each of these groups offers information and resources for our caregivers in Wichita, KS. Our partners presented information and training sessions to our staff, but these organizations can potentially benefit the families of our clients as well.
