AttentaCare Caregiver Education

We recognize the critical importance of engaging highly skilled and qualified caregivers in the home, or in a Community Based Facility. Whether a caregiver is caring for a family member or a member of the community, it is imperative that they have a sound working knowledge of state regulations and requirements. Additionally, caregivers should strive to master appropriate and safe techniques for addressing the myriad of long term care needs of the elderly and physically and mentally disabled.

Although many may think of Care-giving as doing a little housekeeping and helping dispense medicine. It may be seen as easy to help push a wheelchair and slide someone into bed.

However, Caregivers must sometimes navigate difficult and nuanced situations, and engage in informed critical thinking so as to provide the best possible outcomes for those they serve. For example, behavioral and psychological concerns can be beyond challenging. The ability to provide direction and redirection when needed, at the right time, in the right way is paramount.  Appropriate vs inappropriate interaction with clients is a major challenge for Caregivers and can have grave consequences for all concerned. These skills go well beyond providing assistance with daily living activities and administering medications.  AttentaCare provides the exposure and depth that allows motivated Caregivers to become excellent Caregivers!

It is sometimes difficult to secure a qualified and skilled Caregiver for ourselves and loved ones.  It is critically important that Caregivers are properly trained to meet the needs of the recipient.

Personal Care Worker Education

Personal Care Workers (PCWS) work in assisting with daily activities such as dressing, bathing, toileting.  They usually work in the home but not exclusively and are typically responsible for “hands on services” that are indeed personal to the client.  A PCW may also provide what is sometimes referred to as supportive care such as cooking and cleaning.  Generally, PCWs provide medication reminders, but do not administer medications. Although no license or certification is currently required to become a PCW, proper training is required prior to providing care.  We provide the training specific to the care plan for the individual and may include:

  • Bathing

  • Dressing

  • Toileting

  • Transferring

  • Oral Hygiene

  • Assistive Devices

  • Diet, Nutrition and Cooking

  • Medication Reminders
