In 2012, 15.4 million caregivers provided care for Alzheimer’s patients. myCNAjobs, the first professional caregiver network, announces the enhancement to its growing caregiver training modules to include Alzheimer’s training for both professional and familial caregivers.
"With 5.2 million Americans living with Alzheimer's disease and 10,000 Baby Boomers retiring each day, learning to care for memory loss sufferers is essential for professionals and families," says Brandi Kurtyka, Chief Marketing Officer of myCNAjobs. "It’s challenging for caregivers to be fully prepared for the progression of Alzheimer’s disease without the proper tools and knowledge."
The digital caregiver classes help educate caregivers to manage behavioral and physical changes that occur with disease progression. Powered by aQuire, the training is available 24/7 allowing caregivers to complete the training at their own pace.
Caregivers receive access to over 80 online training modules, including the newly enhanced Alzheimer's suite. Courses include:
Memory Loss and Aging
Getting a Diagnosis
Learning to Communicate
Daily Care Skills
Helping Families Cope
Environment is Important
Activities for Special People
Special Consideration for Food and Fluids
Managing Behavior Challenges
Managing Pain in People with Memory Loss
