His previous owner was no longer able to care for him so the Humane Society took him in about three weeks ago. Chevy is a very friendly and happy boy who loves all people and dogs. You can tell that he used to be an indoor pet as he seems to be housetrained and he is really well-behaved. He also rides well in the car and is just an all around great dog!

Arkansas collaboration launches online curriculum to help in-home caregivers comply with state law. Act 1410 of 2013, requires in home assistants have a minimum of forty (40) hours of skilled training. As of April 1st 2014, any paid assistant providing services to clients fifty (50) years or older must have formal training to do so. Current U.S labor statistics* show the in-home caregiver as the second fastest growing occupation due to an ever increasing aging population. A recent Arkansas survey** shows 90 percent of voters fifty years and older prefer to receive care at a setting other than a nursing home. It is estimated three to five thousand untrained workers in Arkansas will need training to meet that demand. In response to the growing need and new law, Elder Stay at Home, a company developed through the UAMS BioVentures Incubator Program, and the University of Arkansas Global Campus have collaborated to develop a new online training course. “Our objective to provide top-notch, quality online training programs for people who seek to rise in their professions is very much in line with our mission”, said Javier Reyes, vice provost for distance education at the U. of A. Global Campus. “Playing a role in the launch of the In-Home Assistant training seemed a natural fit.” BioVentures Associate Director and General Counsel Christopher Fasel added, "Not only is this evidence of the amazing growth potential for all technology-based companies in Arkansas, it also represents an ongoing commitment from Elder Stay at Home and the University of Arkansas to continue the creation of high-quality jobs in the state while increasing the health and wellness of Arkansans and all Americans.” The content and teaching method for the online course come exclusively from The Schmieding Method™ which is a caregiver training curriculum developed by the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences and the Schmieding Center for Senior Health and Education in Springdale. The internet course is offered statewide, allowing students to train at their own pace anywhere at any time. The cost of the course is $375. Low interest tuition loans are available. Elder Stay at Home is the distributor of the Schmieding Method™ curriculum. In a New York Times article last year, AARP’s Senior Vice President and Director of Public Policy, Susan Reinhard, called the Schmieding Method™ the “model” for caregiving training programs. The Schmieding Method™ is taught throughout Arkansas and at community colleges and training centers in Texas, California, and Hawaii. There will be three training sites in Oklahoma beginning in 2015. For information and registration, go to www.ariha.org. or contact Carolyn Long (479)790-7722. For information about student loans, email email@example.com
