At Loving Choice Senior Care, we offer a 75-hour training course that will give you a certificate that allows you to become a paid home health aide or a caregiver.
During this course, you will learn all of the information you need to become a professional caregiver. We teach you about the common diseases and conditions of patients you will care for, the type of medication your patients may be on, and what to look out for with these conditions and medications.
In addition, we also teach you skills in how to care for your patients. Most people already know how to cook or do laundry, but when caring for someone else, especially someone with specific needs, we train everyone to handle these simple tasks in the proper way.
We train you on how to bath a patient, how to dress someone who has had a stroke, you’ll learn about certain diet requirements, and much more.
Being a caregiver to a loved one can be a full-time job itself, so it can seem hard to try to find the time to have another job so you can support your family while caring for this family member.
In the state of Ohio, you can apply to be a paid caregiver for a family member as long as they are not your spouse or a child under the age of 18. There are various programs that your loved one could qualify for. You can receive training and get paid to be their caregiver.
This is an amazing opportunity for those who need a caregiver because being taken care of by someone you know and trust makes it much easier for both the person being cared for and providing the care.
