November Caregiver Newsletter

November Caregiver NewsletterNovember

Hello Team!

Welcome to Fall!.  We wanted to give everyone some exciting updates!

Finding Someone Doing It Right:  Align Home Health continues to be recognized by industry professionals for having the best team in Montgomery, Greene, and Clark counties.  Not a week goes by that a client, social worker, or friend does not go out of their way let us know how good members of our team are.  With that in mind, we would like to recognize these folks.  So starting this month, we will be giving away 10 gas cards every month to individuals who continue to provide great care, communicate well with the office, and go beyond the call of duty.

Also, to those individuals who have had no called off shifts in a given calendar month, they will be entered into a monthly drawing for a $100 gas card.

All contest winners will be published in the newsletter for recognition by the team!

Free CEU’s: As a reminder, all Align Caregivers are required by the State to have at least 8.0 CEU’s per year.  For anyone with any existing CEU’s for 2015 or 2016, please send us copies or take pictures of the certs with your phone and email/text.  For those needing CEU’s, there are great resources online for FREE CEU’s.  We use and recommend http://ce.nurse.com/FreeCE.aspx for all CEU’s.  Registration is fast and free it is creates a cert that you can keep if ever you are audited by the State.

Free Health & Welfare Alerts: We have begun using a website to keep everyone updated on health and welfare alerts.  The articles are short and meant to keep you posted on things effecting our clients on a periodical basis.  If you have a couple minutes, open the link and read the top article.  The most recent article, Preventing the Flu, is particularly important this time of year and is MANDATORY READING for any caregiver who takes care of DODD clients.

In Closing:  Thanks again to the effort of every single caregiver on the team.
