Senior1Care to Train Much Needed Health Care Workers
In response to Governor Eric Holcomb’s executive order to alleviate the extreme strain COVID- 19 has put on our health care systems, Senior1Care and Legacy C.N.A. Training, began working with the Indiana Health Care Association & Indiana State Department of Health to help develop a condensed training course for temporary Personal Care Attendants or PCAs.
Personal Care Attendants perform resident care procedures that are part of the training required to earn a Certified Nursing Assistant, or CNA, certification. They do things like getting patients up in the morning, bathing and toileting, serving meals and taking temperatures.
This basic skills training will begin next week in a fully equipped Noblesville training classroom. The large classroom is complete with two hospital beds, patient mannequins, a wheelchair, and all the equipment needed to start the PCA training right away. The certification takes a minimum of 5 hours classroom & 3 hours simulation/demonstration as compared to 3 weeks of accelerated training for the CNA course. Once completed, the PCA receives a letter of certification that can get them a job that day. Even better, Legacy CNA is offering the course for free as a public service.
Nursing facilities, assisted living facilities, and other places where seniors live are desperate for additional health care workers due to the coronavirus pandemic, and that includes the immediate need for CNAs. The addition of temporary PCAs will help ease this shortage and supply needed support to the healthcare industry.
Legacy CNA Training is Senior1Care’s training school and is the top CNA training school in the state. The training for CNAs is rigorous, and after the training is complete students must pass a state exam to receive their certification.
Patrick Broccolo, Co-Owner at Senior1Care, said “Once the coronavirus crisis eases, PCAs will be encouraged to continue their education for a CNA certification.” The state has added provisions that will allow the PCA training to be counted towards a CNA certification.

Crises mean Opportunities for Small Businesses
Small businesses are more flexible, leaner, agile, and able to react faster to abrupt and sudden changes in the world. The current crisis is requiring the small businesses to pick up the slack, fill in the gaps that that our larger counterparts are unable to do.
This can be made more challenging by Stay@Home orders. But such an order need not mean the end of business. Just a change to business as usual.
Through a combination of cloud services, such as Office365, VPN, and remote desktop options, we can help you and your staff maintain work cycles from outside the office. Most VoIP phone systems will allow staff to either receive business calls on their smart phones or the desk phone can be connected to the home broadband.
And most of the tools needed to implement are already available in most businesses.
Indy’s I.T. Department is open for business, where our business is supporting your business.
