Institute for Professional Care Education designs tracks specifically for Griswold caregiver

BROOKFIELD, Wis. — The Institute for Professional Care Education by OnCourse Learning has signed an education partnership agreement with Griswold Home Care that will benefit Griswold caregivers who work throughout more than 200 offices in 32 states.

IPCED, a national leader in training and compliance solutions for assisted living communities, home care providers and home health agencies, will provide an array of educational opportunities to Griswold’s team.

The education initiative includes tracks designed specifically for Griswold locations to aid in the following areas:

  • Improve growth and development
  • Increase retention
  • Offer incentivized training opportunities
  • Meet state compliance
  • Provide continuing education credits/CEUs

“The major benefit for Griswold’s team is access to the largest online training library for caregivers in the U.S.,” said Sharon Brothers, MSW, the president and founder of IPCED. “Caregiving professionals recognize that training excellence is essential in providing the level of care that clients deserve.”

IPCED’s library of hundreds of nationally accredited courses includes online learning, live training, webinars and DVDs.

Brothers has experience as an educator for all levels of staff and has been a developer, owner and operator of dementia care assisted living communities in two states. She has built education programs that thousands of caregivers have studied to build their knowledge.

Earlier this year, she was a featured speaker at the Home Care Association of America’s national conference in Austin, Texas, where she presented on “How to Build Caregiving Experts.”

“As the need for more caregivers has risen across the country, our reputation for delivering high-quality training and certification opportunities has grown as well,” Brothers said.

OnCourse Learning specializes in education for the healthcare, financial services and real estate industries. More than 900,000 professionals in those industries rely on OnCourse Learning for their continuing education, training and certification needs.
