CareAcademy will acquire NextStep’s video-based content and learning management technology for CNAs to expand its footprint as the training solution of choice across the caregiver ecosystem.
BOSTON (Dec. 13, 2022) — CareAcademy, the leading care enablement platform for home care and home health organizations, announced today that Griswold Home Care has renewed and expanded its relationship with CareAcademy to make its online caregiver training available to all of their agency franchise locations. Backed by more than 40 years of experience in compassionate home care services, Griswold Home Care will continue to offer the best-in-class education and advanced certifications to aid in caregiver onboarding, training, and compliance management.
“Griswold’s phenomenal team of caregivers has impacted more than 100,000 families across 30 states, and CareAcademy has supported that journey in serving the unique needs of our clients,” said Amanda Lepore, CSA®, director of learning and development at Griswold Home Care. “CareAcademy’s easy-to-use training empowers our caregivers to provide the best care possible to our clients so they can continue to live where they love, and we are looking forward to expanding opportunities for our caregivers with CareAcademy.”
CareAcademy’s platform automatically assigns home care aides to classes required in each state, making it easy for franchise owners to ensure compliance with state regulations and quickly onboard new employees. Once onboarded, caregivers can then earn disease-specific certifications and advance their careers through continued education, while feeling more confident in the care they provide to clients.
Griswold franchisees have access to CareAcademy’s complete library of 450+ courses and certifications and are eligible for CareAcademy’s CAREer PAth Initiative – a first-of-its-kind higher-education partnership that enables caregivers to translate CareAcademy courses into college credit toward a degree at Southern New Hampshire University (SNHU).
“We’re thrilled to continue our partnership with Griswold to support its growth,” said CareAcademy CEO and Founder Helen Adeosun. “As one of the national leaders in home care services, Griswold has had a significant impact on thousands of families, and we are proud to enable their caregivers to improve health care outcomes while opening up new opportunities in their own careers.”
CareAcademy provides high-quality, state-approved training for home care agencies, home health agencies, franchise systems and payors that increases learner knowledge for better health outcomes. More than 350,000 learners have completed more than 2 million classes with CareAcademy. With easy-to-use, web-based courses and a robust administrator platform, CareAcademy offers education and compliance solutions for home care and home health organizations of all sizes, from small agencies to multi-state enterprises.
