November is National Home Care & Hospice Month, and CareAcademy honors the contributions of direct care workers (DCWs) and the value they bring to their clients and families. These heroic caregivers play a central role in our healthcare system and in homes across the nation.
End-of-Life Care Certification
One of the greatest challenges a caregiver faces is caring for a dying client. CareAcademy’s End-of-Life Care Certification prepares DCWs to manage the emotionally demanding and stressful nature of caring for a client at the end of life. The certification provides the knowledge and skills needed to support clients’ families and provide optimal care for older adults in their final days. The 7.5-hour curriculum covers such topics as advance directives, palliative care and hospice care, end-of-life care for clients living with dementia, care of a body after death, and coping with grief after the death of a client.
