myCNAjobs Delivers Alzheimer's and Memory Caregiver Training Online

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) May 03, 2013

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

Assessments and Care Planning

Creating Moments of Joy

Memory Enhanced Activities

It's Saturday Night


“In addition to the impeding caregiver shortage, there's a shortage of knowledge related to aging related diseases and how best to manage them in the home," adds Kurtyka.

Professional caregivers looking for a caregiver or CNA job are able to receive a certification after 80% successful course completion. Familial caregivers are able to take the courses at their own pace and share the content among family members interested in learning more about how to properly care for a loved one.
