First Home Care Provider Class Graduates from Lincoln Home
Six Home Care Providers Complete Twenty Hour Excellence in Care-Giving Class
Training came to a close today after twenty hours of training spread over a five week period. Class participants learned a range of handy skills for in-home care-giving. Lincoln Home’s Giving Excellent Care in the Home: From Our Home to Yours curriculum centers on simple but important skills that boost confidence and help home care givers gain insight.
Class topics cover a broad range of skills. Right from the start students jump in with both feet, taking on subjects like personal values, home safety, and how to help granny with her dentures. Learning different skills and techniques help students become more confident providers.
I enjoyed the activities and games that really enhanced learning.
Student feedback helps us know what we’re doing well and what we can do better. It’s exciting to hear how the class was received, and even more exciting to know we’ve made a difference in our community with this class offering.
I gained so much through this class. I now have a different perspective and feel more confident caring for my stepfather.
I liked the way we reviewed chapters after reading them. It felt easier to take in the lessons that way.
I learned about all aspects of daily living. I gained a lot of new information and recognize that every care-giving situation is going to be different. This class is fantastic!
I liked the interaction with other students during activities.
We all got off to a good start that provided ease of sharing information and asking questions.
I learned a lot about care-giving. The biggest lesson I take away from this class is “someone else’s emergency is not my emergency.”
Please stay tuned. Lincoln Home will offer this course again in the fall of 2017.
