The Future of Caregiving
In May of 2022, Vicki founded Giving Care with Grace. Her company provides a peer-inspired educational series focused on soft skills training for seasoned and newly emerging caregivers. The series serves as a bridge connecting the gap in today’s technical skills training and curriculum.
Meet Vicki. After 30 years of leadership in the home care industry, Vicki stepped back from her professional career and pursued her passion. With caregivers exiting the profession in record numbers, compounded by the pandemic, Vicki saw an incredible opportunity to provide additional tools and education focusing on caregiver SOFT SKILLS training. The peer-inspired series provides best practices and knowledge to elevate workplace satisfaction.
A Passion for Sharing and Inspiring
Vicki validated her
program in a think-tank session with a group of local professional caregivers. After that, she met with NC Works and she was encouraged to come back with a finished product. They connected her with Gaston College Small Business Center who connected her with the resources to develop a course curriculum to tie all of the pieces together.
Additionally, Vicki is driven to increase awareness of the critical role of professional caregivers in the healthcare continuum. She works diligently to connect providers with access to resources for caregivers in their local communities.
