We love encouraging caregivers to continue Professional Development! We know caregivers are busy caring for seniors, and sometimes it’s easy to forget about your own development. That’s why CareLinx has partnered with CareAcademy to provide professional caregiving courses that you can take at your own pace and on any device. Learn how to use below!
You can access Care Academy once you log in to your account. Click on the 'Caregiver' button on the bottom of the page.
Once on this page, you can learn more about Care Academy and when you're ready to start a class, you can click 'START CLASS NOW'.
On this page you can browse through all the different available classes. You will need to complete the "Being a Professional Caregiver on CareLinx', prior to being allowed to view any other classes. Once you complete this class, you will have access to many wonderful classes.
