I signed up and made the best decision I've ever made. CertifiedCare is the best comprehensive program around. It's hard to improve on the best!

I would like to express how CertifiedCare has really paid off for me. Being "certified" means more employment in my field and more wages. Within 3 days of passing the exam, I had my frame worthy certificate and have gone on to get a new fabulous job. DONT KNOW WHY I WAITED SO LONG!

Sueann W., CertifiedCare Family Personal Care Aide

I am looking forward to strengthening my knowledge and confidence about caregiving. Thank you for establishing your company and offering a valuable resource.

Mary R., CertifiedCare Professional Personal Care Aide

Your certification program is a blessing to me and my new career.

I would suggest investigating CertifiedCare as a very good source for caregiver training. It is a strong choice in this area.

Dahaiana R., CertifiedCare Family Personal Care Aide

I felt that after learning about the program it was the best fit for the single working mom that I am! 

Christina B., CertifiedCare Professional Personal Care Aide

As the Executive Director of an Assisted Living Facility, I highly recommend all of the online courses. 

Elizabeth H., CertifiedCare Professional Personal Care Aide

I love this. It is the best thing I’ve done (besides my 3 kids) in my 62 years of life.

D. Statland, CertifiedCare Professional PCA

I am doing this to not only better myself and hopefully give more peace of mind to potential clients and/or their family, but also, in order to help your organization to further your cause since 100% of profits are going back into working on more regulations/legislation in this matter.

Dr. Cathleen Carr Addresses Rotary International Meeting About Elder Abuse and Neglect

 

http://www.clarksvillerotary.net/Images/service5.gif

By Amille Carbonelli, a CertifiedCare volunteer.

On September 21, 2011 Dr. Cathleen Carr, founder and Executive Director of CertifiedCare and CertifiedeCare.org gave a multimedia presentation entitled ” Elder Abuse and the Family Caregiver”  before  the Solon, Ohio chapter of Rotary International.  She was invited to speak by Betty Hickle, Director at Large.

The purpose of her presentation was to raise awareness about the prevalence of elder abuse and neglect and the importance of caregiver certification to help reduce these ‘shame crimes’.

She pointed out that States will face significant shortfalls in the long-term care workforce particularly among those delivering home based services to the frail elderly.

As people live longer and have fewer children, family structures are transformed. This has important implications in terms of providing care to older people.  In our country that has a very low birth rate, future generations will have few if any siblings. As a result of this local and global trend toward having fewer children, people will have less familial care and support as they age.

Dr. Carr explained that because of the growing ranks of people living well into the 80′s and 90′s there will be an ever growing need for well trained elder care providers for the future.  She further explained that because of this coming ‘Third Age boom’ the best time to invest in eldercare education and training is now while we are just ahead of the curve.

Dr Carr said, “This presentation delineates science-based strategies and highlights calls to action that  facilitate the delivery of multiple preventive services to the elderly.” Her emphasis was on the importance of caregiver education and training prior to undertaking the challenging work of elder care giving.
