We want the readers of this blog to be highly successful. We generally focus on three topics 1) Helping home health agencies thrive by expanding into home care and care transitions, 2) Helping everyone understand the potential of care transitions to transform health care, and 3) helping home care businesses to be successful by differentiating themselves from the competition. Today's post falls into the third category - differentiating home care - and it comes from our good friend and mentor, Ginny Kenyon.

But sticking with today's theme of differentiated care givers, we bring you Ginny Kenyon's Three Reasons Your Agency needs a Home Health Training Program.
1. You Need a Competitive Edge
