New foundational aide-level training for home health and home care agencies is now available in six languages.
MORRISVILLE, N.C.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Relias, the trusted workforce enablement partner to more than 11,000 healthcare and human service organizations worldwide, today announced its new foundational aide-level courses for home health and home care agencies, available in six languages. This new offering from Relias is now the largest of its kind.
The caregiver courses span fundamental job training, compliance training, and point-of-care microlearning and have been well-received with more than 17,000 courses completed since launch.
This comprehensive course library will help improve aide retention and recruitment efforts — which are crucial considering the current high turnover rates in home-based care — and drive new referrals and improve patient satisfaction scores. The new courses will equip caregivers with the necessary skills to assist patients and clients with activities of daily living, provide care for different diseases and conditions, comprehend basic infection control protocol, plan for grocery shopping trips and meal preparation, and perform housekeeping activities.
This aide-level training is fully translated, including all text, audio, video, and video subtitles and is available in English, Spanish, Haitian Creole, Filipino, Russian, and Chinese. With more than 200 short, simple courses covering a variety of topics, caregivers and home health aides can complete each lesson in their native language in less than 10 minutes.
“Turnover in the home-based care industry is the highest it has been since before the pandemic, so successful retention and recruitment efforts, including efficient onboarding and training, are paramount when providing quality care to a high volume of patients and clients,” said Maria Samot, SVP of Content at Relias. “With immigrants accounting for 25% of direct care workers, multilingual courses are necessary for agencies to train their entire organizations and improve caregiver performance and competency. Relias’ online home-based care courses will allow caregivers to receive training in their native languages at their own convenience, ensuring staff remain in the field caring for patients while allowing agencies to track their staff’s training progress.”
Integrated directly within the Relias Learner mobile app, these courses can be easily completed by caregivers on a mobile device. Additionally, the Relias platform generates compliance reports, automates onboarding and annual trainings, and much more to keep track of employee progress, meet state training requirements, and manage new hires.
