SPRINGFIELD — HomeCare Hands 24/7 announced the opening of its HCH EDU at 135 State St., Suite 203 in order to provide its new Fast-Trak Education and Training program to its current caregivers, future caregivers, and local businesses.
This program will be infusing current caregivers with additional training to improve the quality of care to private clients and business partners. It will also be able to provide education and training to individuals looking to make caregiving a rewarding, lifelong career path.
HomeCare Hands 24/7 has recognized a gap within the home-care industry and will be offering educational services for businesses that can utilize the training as well.
Registered nurse and certified Nurse Educator Nancy Parks-Mleczko will be overseeing and directing training sessions, along with other qualified staff. The curriculum will include certifications and certificates of completion, visual media, and testing. For the hands-on experience, the company will utilize brand-new, state-of-the-art medical equipment. HCH EDU seeks to ease the acuity of caregiver shortages and lessen the high turnover rate due to lack of proper education by streamlining the process with a savings of time and money.
On Thursday, Feb. 17 at 10 a.m., HomeCare Hands 24/7 will conduct a ribbon-cutting ceremony with its founder and CEO Sina Holloman. Light refreshments will be served, and for the rest of the day, the company will conduct tours of the suite where classes will be taking place. Business professionals, potential students, and caregivers are welcome to visit, discuss the curriculum, view the equipment, and sign up for classes.
