We know how important it is to keep the mind, body and spirit healthy and strong. And even if one aspect is ailing, we help strengthen it as much as possible while supporting the rest of the person. Being connected to other people, getting exercise and making healthy food choices are all part of living a long and meaningful life.

Our people are our most important resource
Exceptional training for our caregivers…
Exceptional care for you
The hardest decision
– THE RIGHT CHOICE
When you’re choosing a care provider for a loved one, one thing makes all the dierence: a caring and well-trained staff. Our caregivers have advanced training far beyond the basic orientation offered by other providers. Our unique training extends to the heart as well as the mind.
Because of our commitment to the training of all of our staff members, we’ve partnered with the Institute for Professional Care Education to provide a uniquely effective approach to staff training and development.
The IPCed approach uses an interactive and dynamic training mode, one proven to be more effective than traditional training.
Our staff is our most important asset. We’ve chosen to invest in a training program that will provide our clients with the highest possible level of care available.
The Institute for Professional Care Education’s interactive and dynamic approach is so instructionally effective that you can see the immediate and long-term difference.
The IPCed Difference
We pride ourselves on hiring people for their compassion, patience and flexibility. But we know this isn’t all it takes to provide you with the best care possible. They also need excellent training and expertise in the field of caregiving.
Not all training is created equally. The experts at IPCed provide quality training for quality care.
Why Always Neighbors is committed to training…
Higher Level of Service
Training provides the client with a higher level of service.
A person who is specfically trained in his or her job will provide a consistent, higher level of skilled care.
Boosts Staff Morale
Training creates a sense of value and boosts morale.
Many studies have shown that staffs who have more training provided feel better prepared to do their work. They feel better about themselves and their own skills because they are equipped to handle more complex and diverse care giving situations.
Less Staff Turnover
Training reduces staff turnover.
Training increases caregiver retention. When staff who know a client’s normal pattern leave, replacement staff may not notice when something is not quite right. High turnover results in increased health problems among clients and decreased satisfaction among family members. Trained caregivers feel invested in the company and their clients.
Training stimulates growth.
Staff will only stretch to become the best they can be if you present them with challenges and opportunities for growth. Companies who don’t train or provide poor training to their staff may become mediocre. We stand out from the rest by offering exceptional staff training opportunities.
In a dynamic approach to staff training, we have partnered with:
