Caregiver Leadership Matters

The topic of caregiver leadership has never been addressed in the industry beyond a passing mention of it here and there. And, typically, when it is mentioned, it is usually directed at management at assisted living facilities, group home and the like. This makes addressing the issue of leadership in caregiving much more important.

The American Caregiver Association believes that it critical that caregivers understand their role as leaders in the field. It doesn’t matter whether you are a family caregiver, working for a home health company or working as a private duty caregiver, leadership starts with you. That is, leadership starts with leading yourself.

This course provides the caregiver with foundational knowledge about leadership, its function, and your role in leadership. No matter what role you play as a caregiver, your leadership matters.
