“We are very proud of our people for taking on the challenge of formal education again – often having left school many years ago. They are amazing caregivers but mostly, they are fabulous people.” Suzanne Ings, Home Instead, Waikato
Careworkers at Home Instead Waikato who have recently completed Level 2 National Certificate in Health, Ageing and Disability Support, were honoured at a special graduation event.
Achieving a qualification is a significant and exciting event – a time of recognition and celebration. Home Instead in Waikato recently hosted an event to celebrate their support workers’ successes. A large group of careworkers recently completed Level 2 National Certificate in Health, Ageing and Disability Support and were honoured at this special graduation event.
This leading In-home Senior Care provider is a network of locally owned franchise offices designed to help support adults in their own home as they grow older. The organisation provides clients with outstanding, personalised in-home care that helps to maintain their quality of life, independence and dignity. A 24 hour, seven day a week service is provided.
Co-owner/Manager of Home instead Waikato, Suzanne Ings stated, “We have a passion for the idea that seniors have the right to choose to remain living in their own home. We believe with appropriate support this can happen. We have a committed team of honest, caring and compassionate caregivers and administrators who share this goal and are willing to go that extra mile for the client.
We are committed to providing quality care for our clients and this also includes ongoing quality training opportunities for our caregivers. It is now a condition of employment that all of our caregiver team have already attained or are undertaking this qualification”.
The qualifications have given workers confirmation of their abilities and skills and inspired some to go on to the next level of training. Many of this initial group have progressed to Level 3 training.
