California Certification for Senior Care

Senior caregiver skills are necessary in order to deliver safe, quality care to seniors in their homes (and anywhere). But senior home care as a professionally managed service is a newer industry, if you will, that has only been around for less than 20 years. Why? Because as transportation and communication has become more advanced, more than 60% of American adults live more than 1 hour away from their parents. Back in the horse and buggy days we all lived near our parents and grandparents. Also, women have joined the workforce so usually are not available to stay home to assist with senior care.

The American Home Care Association created one of the first templates for caregiver training requirements to be presented for legislation to be passed into law as a national caregiver training requirement. As it became apparent a federal law would not be passed, the licensed senior home care agencies have advocated for state laws to be passed into legislation to help regulate senior home care in order to protect both the caregiver and the seniors. This has happened with more than half of the states in the U.S.A. requiring training and the rest of the states requiring at least some licensing and training guidelines.

Even family caregivers can deliver better care by learning caregiving skills for safe transfers, infection control and communication skills.

Find the caregiver training requirements in your state on Caregiverlist, the industry’s only training resource created by senior care professionals and designed for caregivers without a medical background. The 8-hour training course contains all the caregiver training elements that are included in mandated training which then may expand on more of the age-related illnesses.

These online caregiver training courses will now allow caregivers to meet state guidelines. The state of Washington and New Jersey both require some clinical training hours to be included.

The Professional Association of Caregiver’s membership includes this basic training  (Year-1 Caregiver Training) to match your state’s requirements plus a t-shirt and lapel pin to show validation of your accomplishment for passing the exam to confirm your knowledge retention of each of the skills taught. You may also submit a caregiver job application to be considered for part-time and full-time caregiving positions in your area as there is a constant demand for more senior caregivers to care for America’s aging population.

 


California Caregiver Certification Requirements for 2016

California Assembly Bill AB1217 was passed by the California legislature and created the new California Home Care Services Consumer Protection Act mandating professional senior caregivers to complete 10 hours of caregiver training.

The new California caregiver training requirements allow caregivers to take a digital senior caregiver training course which must teach orientation and safety skills and core competencies. Senior caregivers may also join the Professional Association of Caregivers and receive a t-shirt and lapel pin with their training.
