Why should you specialize?
There’s no doubt, your caregivers must be able to care for a wide range of clients. However, research now suggests there is an increasing need to provide specialized care for certain clinical conditions. It makes sense from a client care standpoint to specialize. But it’s also becoming increasingly necessary in order to stay competitive in your market.
Creating advanced Caregiver Specialist roles for your Direct Care Team has the potential to:
- Reduce Caregiver Turnover.
- Increase Client Satisfaction.
- Stabilize the Care Environment for Clients.
- Create a Meaningful Career Ladder for Caregivers.
Decrease the Knowledge Gap
You’re probably aware that a knowledge gap exists between what your caregivers know and what they need to know. Non-medical caregivers often have little to no pre-employment training, yet they provide 90 to 100 percent of all the hands-on care your clients need.
And, with advances in medicine, people are living longer than ever, but they are also getting sicker than ever. So that knowledge gap just keeps widening.
In order to care for the increasingly complex needs of an aging population, caregivers need more, targeted, specialized education that prepares them to provide safe and comprehensive care for the the clients they serve. Creating Caregiver Specialists is the answer!
