Welcome to The Caring Generation Library Catalogue for Professional Caregivers
Education and Support for Elder Care Professionals
If you are an elder care professional, you’re in the right place to find articles and support. Whether you work as an in-home caregiver or are a CNA working in home health, a care community, or a hospital, day-to-day work challenges are familiar.
There’s never enough time in the day. You’d like more education and training but it may not be offered by your organization. And, at the end of the day you go home exhausted.
Most professionals working in the elder care industry do this work for the right reasons. You love your clients and patients. But, their families can sometimes be unreasonable or demanding because they don’t understand the constraints under which you work.
Additionally, if you work in a hospital or are an EMS provider there are additional challenges. Sometimes patients become agitated or threaten you. Emergency response situations aren’t for the timid.
Then there are clients and patients with health conditions like memory loss or mental health concerns for which you may not have received adequate training. Elder care professionals working in memory care communities benefit from special training and learning additional skills. It’s also important to understand the role of family caregivers who are appointed as a medical durable power of attorney or a court-appointed guardian so that you are aware of their legal responsibility of care.
