Helen Adeosun spoke with CNBC about the growing demand for healthcare jobs and how online training helps providers fill the gap.
CareAcademy, the home care industry’s first mobile-friendly caregiver training and compliance automation platform, is set to be used at Home Helpers Home Care locations beginning in 2019.
CareAcademy’s online training helps home care agencies meet clients’ needs and state training compliance.
“At Home Helpers Home Care, our mission is to provide top quality in-home care and home health care services that improve quality of life and create peace of mind,” said Emma Dickison, CEO, Home Helpers Home Care. “With that goal in mind, robust, ongoing caregiver training and education technology are essential. We chose CareAcademy as our preferred partner for caregiver training because they offer the best home care training platform on the market, it’s compliant and helps us train the next generation of caregivers more efficiently than ever before thanks to the upcoming integration with ClearCare,” said Dickison.
With CareAcademy, caregivers can learn new skills and grow professionally anytime and anywhere. Now, caregivers can easily take their training with them so that employers never have to retrain a caregiver who has completed a CareAcademy class. Classes can be taken on laptops, tablets, and smartphones.
“It’s simple, CareAcademy provides the right training, at the right time, right wherever the caregivers are,” said Dickison. “The classes are available on their smartphones or computers, CareAcademy automatically assigns the right classes on the correct schedule to meet our caregivers annual training compliance.”
"With CareAcademy, we don't have to spend nearly as much time as we have in the past reminding caregiver to complete training,” said Peggy Milne, Franchise Owner, Home Helpers Home Care of San Mateo, CA. “Since the training actually works on the caregiver's smartphones, and they get text message reminders automatically, our caregivers actually get it done. We're getting our caregivers on-board more quickly than we have in the past."
"It’s an honor and privilege to work with Home Helpers Home Care,” said CareAcademy CEO and Co-Founder Helen Adeosun. “They’re dedicated to providing the best possible home care and home health services in the US, and it shows. CareAcademy is proud to be able to support an organization that provides its employees an opportunity to re-skill and upskill so that they can provide seniors and families with exceptional in-home care.”
