It takes a very special person to be a carer. You are helping people in their own homes or in day centres, residential or nursing homes every day, and that takes patience, caring and understanding.


As well as getting to know clients and their interests and needs, helping with personal care like washing, using the toilet and dressing, food preparation, feeding and giving out medication, carrying out general tasks like housework, and laundry and shopping to name a few: you will also need to understand your legal responsibilities for Safeguarding, have clear professional boundaries and understand what it is to be a lone worker.


That is why we have put together this new and exciting course package to give you everything you need all in one place, to be the best carer you can be.
