Senior caregivers working as professionals in most states are required to have annual training. This just helps to make sure the caregiver has continued to maintain their knowledge of caregiving skills. In addition, caregivers are able to advance their caregiving options and career by demonstrating knowledge in additional areas.
Senior care companies can enroll caregiver in a renewal training course on the Caregiverlist Training Portal with 1-click and senior caregivers and family caregivers may also purchase training on their own for $59 or $79 (to receive a lapel pin and t-shirt).
Buy the online caregiver training course and you will be enrolled in your renewal course automatically or, call 312-669-8820 if you have any questions about the certified caregiver training for your state.

Senior caregivers assist seniors as companion caregivers and nursing aides working in nursing homes, assisted living communities and senior home care agencies. Hospitals also hire certified nursing aides. The pay rate for companion caregivers and nursing aides for 2013 has continued to rise and remains above minimum wage for all professional senior caregivers.
The Caregiverlist® pay survey results records the pay rates of 34,959 professional senior caregivers. Senior caregivers who work for a senior home care agency provide one-on-one caregiving services while nursing aides working for nursing homes and hospitals usually care for anywhere from 10 to 15 residents or patients. C.N.A. staffing ratios of nursing homes are reported in the health inspection reports conducted every 15 months and can be found in the Caregiverlist® Nursing Home Directory. More senior caregivers are needed and anyone with a caring personality may apply to a senior care job in their area on the Caregiverlist® Career Center.
Senior care companies hire from 3 to 6 professional caregivers each week, to keep up with the demand for part-time and full-time senior caregiving services. Most American seniors do not plan ahead for senior care and because of this, when a senior experiences a sudden medical condition such as a stroke, heart attack or the early stages of memory loss, they will then immediately need professional senior caregiving services.
In order to keep up with the demand for senior care, the number of senior home care agencies has increased by 40% since 2008. More than 20 franchise companies provide senior home care in addition to national corporations. More professional senior caregivers are needed to fill these open positions which increase daily.
The Caregiverlist® Career Center assists anyone with a caring personality to learn how to become a senior caregiver and submit a job application which reaches multiple hiring companies in their area who subscribe to “the Caregiverlist®”. As the only resource with an ongoing database of experienced, professional senior caregivers, Caregiverlist® allows companies to efficiently hire the most qualified caregivers in their area. Caregivers may learn about required senior caregiver training and take an online course to learn the necessary caregiving skills and meet state requirements.
