FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Concorde Career Institute (www.concorde.edu) has entered into a partnership with ComForcare Senior Services in Jacksonville (www.comforcarejax.com) to employ graduates of the career institute, even in this tough economy.
ComForcare, a fully licensed, private duty home health agency in the greater Jacksonville area, serves adults from age 18 to 118 with bathing, dressing, medication management, dementia care, transportation and homemaking and companionship enabling people to stay independent longer and maintain a high quality lifestyle.
Concorde, dedicated to educating Jacksonville’s health care workforce, has a beautiful new campus off of Salisbury Road and has been preparing the Jacksonville community for healthcare careers for over 40 years, with students enrolled in a variety of specialized healthcare programs.
Many of Concorde’s students becoming Registered Nurses, Licensed Practical Nurses, and Medical Assistants already have their Certified Nurse Assistant license and are gaining more knowledge to move up in their careers. ComForcare and Concorde have found a way to not only provide the highest-trained CNAs in the area but to also provide flexible schedules while going to school.
In addition, due to their state-of-the-art training labs, ComForcare conducts hands-on skills assessments of all applicants on the Concorde campus which best simulates what happens in the home including ambulation and fall prevention, transferring, and supporting someone using a cane, walker or a wheelchair.
“Partnering with Concorde has been mutually beneficial. ComForcare can hire qualified and dedicated health care workers and assist the local economy by employing Concorde graduates. As a strong source of qualified candidates, we find that their students, many of whom have years of professional experience, are highly-skilled, highly-motivated and passionate health care professionals seeking to better themselves and become the best provider that they can be.”
