About Us

OUR STORY

It never made sense to us that aides at a home health agency receive senior care training, yet family members, who provide 80%+ of care to aging loved ones living at home, have limited access to training. For example, actionable education like how to prevent falls in the house, safely transfer from a bed or chair, or manage difficult behaviour when a loved one is experiencing reduced cognition. Recognizing that this content exists but isn’t available to families, Trualta adapted professional-level healthcare training for the family member audience. We deliver the training via a proprietary, interactive online learning environment, and tailor the learning to each care situation.
