Medical Training Programs Teach Family Home Care



Providing care for seniors is becoming easier for families who are looking for quality home care without resorting to hiring professional caregiving assistance. This is because there are now academic programs which offer family members the knowledge necessary to provide first-rate care for their elders.

One such program is at the Valley colleges in Arizona, with others sprinkling up all over the United States. By participating in these programs, family caregivers are given the foundation necessary to provide long term home care to their loved ones.

For example, students in the Valley program learn to recognize key infections, as well as to perform basic tasks such as how to take a patient’s blood pressure and monitor their vital signs. This is in addition to learning tasks related to providing home care such as toileting, bathing, etc. After graduating from the program, alumni are qualified to provide home care to seniors.

With the number of aging Americans soaring, there is an increased demand for quality home care. Not only is it the preferred options for most seniors, it is often significantly cheaper than its alternatives, such as a nursing home or other residential care facilities.

As such, there is a great demand for these programs which provide family members the ability to provide home care assistance to the elderly. Nonetheless, many are expressing hesitancy towards the growth of these programs, warning that providing home care requires a great deal of emotional and physical strength.
Other times, family caregivers place their full attention on their suffering loved ones, and fail to take their own physical and emotional health into consideration. As such, providing home care is not an option for everyone, and for many families home care agencies can provide a satisfactory alternative.

In any event, one fact is absolutely clear: the growth of these programs reflects the increasing demand for in-home caregiving.

  1. What a wonderful program! Even if a family member decides to hire an in-home caregiver, it's likely that person will not be there all the time. By family members being educated in caregiving, they can step in for their professional caregivers whenever they want. And if they decide not to involve a professional caregiver, this program is all the more valuable.

    Thank you for sharing. Really great stuff.

  9. Senior Care at Home is a good option to reduce the stress of the family caregiver. Seniors can live in the comfort of their home, close to family and a trained home care provider can help them depending on their requirement. If the external help is dedicated and sincere, the family can rely on them and will not be overburdened. The family needs to be educated in caregiving which is needed only in case their absence. This way they can spend more time with their loved ones. However, choosing the right Home Care Provider is also important.

  12. I feel like home care requires a lot of training. It's different than caring for a child. There are a lot more needs, medication and work involved with home care for seniors. Proper training is a must and these people are helping so many to know how to better care for their loved ones.

  13. I can definitely see why it would be important for family members with home care patients to have some medical training. There are times when medical help must be administered to home care patients. It seems like it would save senior's lives for family members to administer emergency medical care when there's an incident.

  14. Great post. Sounds like these medial training programs are doing a lot to make home care easier on families who may not be able to afford hiring outside professionals. However, there are affordable in-home assisted living services out there... especially in my area of Dunbarton, New Hampshire.
