CareAcademy is a learning platform which provides classes for professional non-medical caregivers to learn how to provide excellent care. Our award-winning classes are evidence-based, video-based, accessible, and available just-in-time.
Currently in the US, as adults age in what is called the Silver Tsunami (a global phenomenon), we are facing a crisis: There are not enough qualified professional caregivers to meet the needs of the 43 million older adults. There are currently only 5 million professional caregivers. CareAcademy is providing a scalable way for caregivers to learn the skills of caregiving on their own time to train into the role of professional caregivers. The result is more and better caregivers for those we love
We are providing classroom level training and support without the classroom. This allows for us to grow the number of workers in a fast growing field. We also include the learning that is happening outside of our learning platform so the caregiver has access to more engaging training. This is so valuable that the employers of caregivers (home care agencies) are purchasing our products to grow the capacity of their caregivers. In a year we have trained 8,000+ caregivers vs 400 on average.
Our belief is that in our industry there is a lot of emphasis placed on the employer of home care/home health (the home care agencies) and not the caregiver. Our mantra is win the caregiver win the World. If we are able to provide such an engaging learning experience for caregivers and be supportive of their needs we can teach them to be supportive of the older adults that they care for. In turn, our direct customers will seek us out first to provide training and other services.
