Q: What additional, specialized training do you give your caregivers to enhance the care of different types of seniors?

A: As a partner in care with Charles E. Smith Life Communities, we have always been committed to respond to the needs and circumstances of all types of individuals and families. In addition to extensive dementia and hospice training, our CNA caregiver employees are taught how to be respectful and mindful of Jewish culture, including the practice of keeping Kosher. Serving D.C. and the metropolitan area, we naturally want to provide respectful care to the LGBTQ community. In fact, we were only the second homecare agency in Montgomery County that invested in LGBTQ Cultural Competency Gold Training for our caregivers.
