Success Stories

The home study training courses offered by Milestone HCQU Northwest are a lifesaver for me! They are interesting and informative and most importantly, convenient to my schedule. I even share the home study courses with my staff, who are required to complete 12 hours of annual training. The topics are relevant to our issues and we have used the information in the day-to-day care of our residents.

I am writing in regard to Amy Simon (Milestone HCQU West) and her trainings.  She is absolutely awesome!  I learned so much from her. I loved how she interacted with the individuals, staff and myself. Amy never talked above anyone and was so matter of fact. Amy was always kind, hands-on and asked the individual for permission to complete things. I cannot say enough  about how positive Amy is and how well she teaches. I am so glad I was able to meet Amy. So many times with what we do, we only hear the bad that we do!!!  Amy is just wonderful!!!

While my daughter is experiencing many changes in her life right now and struggling to maintain some stability, I am thankful for the Milestone Work Activity Center, where she attends three days per week. It is the only constant in her life right now. I appreciate the understanding and flexibility they give to my daughter.

Milestone HCQU West's 'Commonly Prescribed Medications' course is really helpful. With this training I understand the importance of observing individuals before and after a medication has been administered.
