Higher Standards Caregiver Training
Emilia Bourland, OTR, ECHM is an occupational therapist who has spent her career advocating for and treating the needs of clients and caregivers.
As an educator at Texas Woman's University Master of Occupational Therapy program, and as a clinician working in settings as diverse as the ICU, acute care, inpatient rehab, skilled nursing, home modification, home health, and outpatient clinics, Emilia came to see two well defined truths.
- Caregivers are foundationally vital to our healthcare system.
- Caregivers are rarely, if ever, given the tools, knowledge, and skill-set they need to safely care for others and themselves.
Acknowledging her own ability to address this problem, Emilia set about creating an organization that could provide vital, practical, accessible training to caregivers all over the world.
Using education to empower others, Emilia's mission is to improve the safety and quality of life of caregivers and the people they care for.
