To the entire Family Home Care family:

I am pleased to announce that FHC has decided to contract with the Home Care Pulse to conduct monthly interviews with our staff to identify satisfaction with various components of the FHC employment experience.  Starting in June, you may get a call from the Home Care Pulse asking for a few minutes of your time to rate FHC and provide feedback both good and constructive to help us in being the best we can be! 

We have found over the past couple of years the feedback we are getting from clients has been invaluable in celebrating the great job all of you do every day and correcting problems where they arise.  We hope to be able to do the same with measuring caregiver satisfaction as well.  We will strive to earn your “10” everyday! 

Thank you in advance for your time and your participation.  Thank you as well for all you do to help FHC serve the communities we live in and help people age in place!

Kind regards,

 

Jeff Wiberg | President & CEO

IPCed CHANGES

FHC offers online continuing education for its employees to help make it convenient and easy to keep up with State CE requirements and improve your knowledge base as a caregiver!

 

Effective with the June 3rd paycheck, the FHC IPCed online program has a minimal fee of $1.75 a pay period for unlimited CE access- significantly less than the $10 per CE charged in the community! This includes access to our excellent P3 certification program allowing advancement in specialty knowledge and pay rate!

 

WA licensed HCP’s (Spokane and Tri-Cities) will automatically be enrolled due to their licensing requirements for WA State. There is an option to Opt-Out of IPCed (form on Caregiver Portal). Once selected, deactivation will remain in force for one year. Those opting out of FHC online program will need to obtain CE’s from an outside source and turn in certificates to HR annually by their birthday.

Non-WA based/unlicensed HCP’s (Palouse, North Idaho, Boise) are not automatically enrolled, but are encouraged to Opt-In via the form on the Caregiver portal. This option will remain in place for one year and continue until Opt-Out form is completed.

 

Important dates for May 2017 initial program roll out:

As of May 11th,all Idaho ONLY HCP’s (no WA license) will need to Opt-In to use the system.

As of May 11th, all WA licensed HCP’s will be in the system and only those who do not wish to complete their CE’s through FHC will need to Opt-Out.

LAST DATE TO OPT-OUT for initial roll out is May 26th as payroll deductions will begin the following pay period (after initial roll out, Opt-In/Out will be allowed once annually as noted above).
