We believe our philosophy, higher then industry standard wages and benefits, low employee turnover, training and continuing education sets us apart.

At Home Nursing Care Los Angeles and San Diego home care specializes in dementia care. Our employees start with a 4 hour dementia certification program. In 2011, the Alzheimer’s Association presented us with a certification for partnering with them to educate our staff on Alzheimer’s and dementia. While the Alzheimer’s Association not long offers this certification we have continued to expand dementia training, offering up to a 23 hour advanced training program to our employees. Every few months, we add a new dementia related topic or offer a review of standard practices.
Over time, our personal care attendants are assigned or encouraged to complete up to 80 hours of continuing education. Each month, we host a training program that includes topics such as: Understanding Alzheimer’s, Communicating with Dementia, End of Life Care, Hoarding and many more.
We offer these training programs both at our training center in Encinitas or on-line, and we always invite our clients and their families to attend. Our agency is approved by the California Board of Registered Nurses and the Board of Behavioral Sciences to offer continuing education to nurses, social workers, private fiduciaries, nursing home administrators and RCFE administrators to provide superior nursing care.
