To see a world-class caregiver in every home, in every country.
Now, in the early 21st century, the population is ageing at an astonishing rate. As the “baby boomers” reach retirement age the need to provide for their healthcare needs is increasingly becoming a global issue.
At Asia-Pacific Caregiver and Healthcare Training Center (APC&HTC), we are cognizant of this global trend. Governments, NGOs and other concerned sectors are attempting to address this matter by allocating more resources to elderly healthcare needs and facilities. However, one question remains pressing: Who will care for the elders?
Given the economic and cultural realities in many countries, the elderly are often left alone at home, or sent to nursing homes. With the dwindling number of enrollees in healthcare education in first-world countries, the essential task of caring for patients are increasingly being filled by immigrants and foreign healthcare workers, especially from Southeast Asia, whose natural caregiving instincts combined with industrious and compassionate work habits make them the most ideal caregivers for both the young and the old.
This statement perfectly describes the vision of Asia-Pacific Caregiver and Healthcare Training Center (APC&HTC). We care and are conscious of the needs of our ageing planet. Thus, we firmly believe that by teaching, training and developing our students into world-class caregivers and nursing assistants, we are helping to provide the world with a realistic and pragmatic solution.
At APC&HTC, we are dedicated to the continuous development and improvement of our curriculum in order to keep up and stay ahead of the ever changing demands and challenges which caregivers face, whether one is a caregiver for his or her own family at home, or employed at a client’s home, at a healthcare institution, or in a foreign country. Yes, you can live and work legally in Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, Japan, and other countries. At Asia-Pacific Caregiver and Healthcare Training Center, we aim to professionalize the art and science of caregiving to serve, love, and show compassion for our ageing planet, and/or infant and children.
