Here’s what some of our caregivers are saying about The Senior’s Choice Certified Companion Aide (CCA®) program:
“I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for such a great learning tool, the Certified Companion Aid (CCA) Program. I was a CNA working for several nursing homes, but this program is so comprehensive I can’t compare it to the certification program for nursing assistants. The program provides a more detailed description of what senior care is really about. The chapters look at the senior as a whole person. The program also presents CNAs with detailed information and diagrams on how home healthcare service should truly be provided. The CCA program guarantees each senior has the best care available. Thank you again.”
“I did not have a lot of formal [education] as a caregiver and the CCA program helped me to gain a better knowledge of what to expect as a caregiver and how to deal with certain situations. The instructional material was interesting and I think that it has given me more confidence as a caregiver.”
“The CCA program has taught me to be a more well-rounded caregiver. Instead of just being proficient at meeting the clients’ physical needs, I now feel more prepared to meet their nutritional, social, emotional and spiritual needs, as well.”
