Engaging self-directed caregivers, including paid family caregivers, with training has always been a challenge for program administrators. Most self-directed programs offer training for tactical tasks like hiring or time tracking, but rarely include skills to provide care at home. In this session, experts from Trualta, a skills-based training platform for caregivers, shared their caregiver-engagement insights from supporting informal or untrained caregivers with personalized, on-demand training across Canada and 21 states. The team’s unique insight into the motivators and barriers to engaging this informal learner will help organizations think differently about implementing training programs. Trualta also shared compelling outcomes from its latest clinical research to help organizations build the business case for training self-directed caregivers.
