We firmly believe that an integral part of being a healthcare professional is ongoing education in order to expand ones knowledge and skills and to stay abreast of changes in the healthcare field. Additionally, increased and current professional education and support will enable Caregivers to handle the challenges of changing and complex Client care needs. To this end, we provide an ever growing number of classes to help our Integracare Home Healthcare Caregivers maintain their skills.

Some courses are regulated and require certification annually or biannually.

Other courses are available to help INTEGRAcare Caregivers develop their skillset to enable them to care for Clients with specific diseases or medical conditions.
