This is a practical programme with lots of interaction and the opportunity to network with other people in similar circumstances. There will be time for questions and opportunities to explore how to benefit from caring for the older person and how to minimise difficulties. There is an emphasis on looking after yourself, as well as your client. We explore the many facets of well being, including mental, physical, emotional and spiritual. There will also be opportunities to discuss the specific topics of interest to the group, but not included in the course syllabus. Whether you are caring for a family member in the home or you are working, or intend to work, as a Health Care Assistant, you will find this programme to be particularly beneficial.
