Home Care of Elderly: How to Reduce Risk of lawsuit

image-210.png (407×412)

Are you a Primary Caregiver for a loved one or client?  Did you know that caregivers can be sued for misfeasance as well as malfeasance.  That means you don’t even have to intend to hurt someone to get sued!  What are you doing for your professional development as a primary caregiver to help improve the odds that you will not catch a elder abuse charge or personal liability suit?  Do you even know where/how you are vulnerable?

The shift towards accountable care models has increased complexity for home care providers -especially Independant Care Aides.  Agency care providers are not much better off, because agency care education is still skimpy, if it exists at all, beyond basic orientation.

Learn key performance outcomes that truly reflect quality outcomes and will guide you thru clear paths to improvement, immediate results, and reduced liability.  It does not take long to get all the info you need to work with confidence, less stress, and happier clients/loved ones.

It is easy to get this self education responsibility out of the way – even from your own couch at home.  How?  Register at CertifiedCare.org for distance eLearning online certification and credentials registry.  You can do the work even from your smart phone!

For almost 10 years CertifiedCare.org has set the standard for modern home caregiving.  What are you waiting for?  Save up, get family-friends-clients to help with the money- and get started ASAP!  Reduce abuse and protect yourself from lawsuits.
