About Caregiver Certification Programs

Caregiving is one of the fastest growing  career fields in the USA.  Caregiver certification should  prepare the caregiver for professional  ‘home-style’  care giving for seniors who stay at home or in an assisted living facility.


Programs must cover all the basic skills required for care and should also include skills in:

  • communication
  • decision-making
  • respect for person in their care
  • stress reduction
  • emotional health
  • psychological health
  • home making
  • caregiving resources

We regularly review and evaluate for profit and not for profit  personal care aide certification programs and always find that CertifiedCare is a stand out.  Certified Care.org uses professional and industry-respected best practices. CertifiedCare’s Programs are AMA Guideline specific and reinforce the principles of independence, choice, dignity and privacy. Ethics is part of their certification curriculum.
