In order to help eliminate the caregiver shortage issues currently affecting the elder health care industry nationwide, and to empower those who are currently working or want to enter the senior living industry, Arizona’s Orchard Pointe, by Heritage Communities has teamed up with Help My Senior LLC to provide personalized and compassion-based, ongoing NCIA-approved caregiver certification training classes.
In alignment with the Nursing Care Institution Administrators, Certified Caregiver and CNA bridge classes are being offered to all current and future Arizona-based senior healthcare workers. Course work includes personalized training class time, distance learning and hands-on skills training the first two Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays of each month, from 7:00 a.m. to 4:15p.m. Free course enrollment is offered to retired, active seniors interested in entering the professional caregiving industry. Registration is required.
“Our certified caregiver classes specifically focus on the treasured caregivers themselves, allowing them to feel uplifted after taking the course," said Shelly Drews, Heritage Communities’ regional outreach and education specialist. "As a result, they not only come out certified, but also feeling empowered with a solid performance file in-hand to bring to their future employers. This ensures greater job performance and satisfaction for both the caregiver and their employer – a win-win!”
And to honor and support those working in elder care, and as part of the launch of the caregiver certification classes, Orchard Pointe is also joining forces with leading international dementia expert Teepa Snow to provide a free, caregiver educational event on July 5, 2022 from 5:30-7:30p.m., at the Arizona Broadway Theater, 7701 W. Paradise Ln., Peoria, AZ 85382. Event is open to the public. Registration is required.
To register for the special Teepa Snow event and/or for the above certified caregiver training classes, contact Regional Outreach and Education Specialist, Shelly Drews, 602-327-3096, email@example.com.
“Our seniors deserve the best care possible and we are committed to working together to help decrease the caregiver shortage here in Arizona,” says Regional Director of Operations at Heritage Communities, Rhonda Thiel. “We are thrilled to be doing our part to help bring a new wave of stellar and well-trained caregivers into the senior living industry.”
