Senior caregiving requires a wide variety of skills, as seniors cope with the challenges of aging and battle various illnesses and age-related diseases. Certification programs for nursing aides and home health aides teach many hands-on skills, but often additional techniques are needed, as well as ongoing training and support when caring for senior's with memory loss, including Alzheimer's Disease.
Caregiverlist has partnered with the leading producer of training videos for the caregiving industry, Terra Nova Films, to assist our caregiving community with understanding how to care for the physical, emotional and psychosocial needs of older adults. If you are a certified nursing aide, home health aide or companion caregiver, these videos will help you improve upon your current skills and learn about the latest approaches for successful caregiving. Family caregivers can also watch the videos to understand the care skills needed to assist with the physical, emotional and psychosocial care needs of aging seniors.
