Lifescape caseworkers gain national certification
Information and Assistance caseworkers Alberto Carrion and Grace Wallace have successfully reached national certification as Certified Information and Referral Specialists in Aging (CIRS-A). Carrion and Wallace join SeniorAssist Director Cheryl Davis and fellow caseworkers Lori Huff and Markesha Brown in successfully attaining the national certification.
Lifescape Community Services COO Manny Carrasquillo said, “Their certifications make our SeniorAssist program one of the only, possibly the only in Winnebago County, 100 percent (certified staff in) Alliance for Information and Referral Services (AIRS) and Certified Information and Referral Specialist-Aging (CIRS-A).”
Carrion and Wallace have been working for this important certification for the past year. This specialization adds to Lifescape’s capacity in serving the thousands of seniors the SeniorAssist department already aids.
Lifescape congratulates Carrion and Wallace for their hard work and achievement in bringing such knowledge and experience to the many seniors served every day.
Certification within the AIRS is a measurement of documented ability in the field of Information & Referral Systems reflecting specific competencies and related performance criteria.
