Care is at home of elderly. Senior man woman with their caregiver at home. Concept of health care for elderly old people disabled. Elderly man.

Having a caregiver in your home or the home of your loved one — bathing them, helping them get dressed, preparing their meals — is an incredibly intimate relationship, and it’s important to us that we find a caregiver who understands and respects this special responsibility.

You can be confident your Sunny Days caregiver is trustworthy and has only the best interests at heart. Many of the people we employ have been providing senior care for decades, and some are Certified Nursing Assistants. Many also hold Home Health Aid (HHA) certifications, and we offer an incentive to caregivers who secure their HHA certification.

Ongoing Training for Caregivers

Continuing education for those providing home care ensures caregivers have the most up-to-date information and skills to care for their clients. Initial training for each caregiver is designed on an individual basis based on the client’s needs. For example, if our client needs to be moved into special lifting equipment for transfer to and from a bed or wheelchair, we ensure the caregiver understands the proper procedure and safety considerations for such a transfer.

All Sunny Days in-home caregivers must complete monthly online training programs that cover a variety of topics, each ending with a quiz. Additionally, we host quarterly in-person training sessions to foster more intensive training and allow our caregivers the opportunity to connect, talk and share best practices.

We also provide training for Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) compliance, which ensures that caregivers understand their legal obligation to maintain client privacy.
