Do you want to help older adults in your community, including Veterans and surviving spouses? Providing home care is a great way to improve seniors’ daily lives. Here’s how you can become an AVCC home care provider.
What Are The Requirements For Home Care Providers Working With AVCC?
The home care providers working with AVCC must provide non skilled services that help Veterans and surviving spouses stay at home. These activities include:
- Meal Preparation
- Medication Reminders
- Light Housekeeping
Home care provider caregivers aren’t required to have medical training like home health care providers. However, caregivers still have to provide care that helps your clients complete day-to-day tasks. AVCC only works with home care providers and not individual caregivers. If you run a home care business, it’s best for you to join a network that offers you resources to build your client base. AVCC’s network offers home care providers the resources they need to grow their business and reach Veteran clientele.
Do Home Care Providers That Work With AVCC Need Any Specialized Training?
Yes, to a degree. Most caregivers need to complete a certification course to enter their field, but home care certifications aren’t required in all 50 states. The providers working with AVCC need to meet all their state requirements. These requirements can vary from state to state.
Home Care Providers vs. Home Health Care Providers
What’s the difference between home care and home health care? Home care workers are considered unskilled workers, while home health care workers are considered skilled workers. Home health care provider requirements are strict because they provide skilled care that requires years of training to administer correctly. Home health care workers often include registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, and physical therapists. They provide medical home care services to people who are recovering from surgery or living with a long-term medical condition. On the other hand, home care workers help clients complete everyday tasks, so they can stay in their homes for as long as possible.
