The aim of the program is to provide a benefit to both the Frail care Facilities and the Carers who are attending the program. The program will introduce Carers to the various aspects of Frail care and Elderly care in both an institutionalised facility (Frail care centre), assisted-living and home-based health care in general.
The essential purpose of this program is to provide training to candidates that will enable them to function as a Health Care worker in an institutional setting (i.e. Frail care or Old Age Nursing Home) in both private and public health care environments. The program will embed the necessary skills and knowledge required to take on the responsibilities of a Care worker in caring for frail and elderly persons. Successful completion of the program will also enable the Care worker to undertake activities of daily living (ADL) in caring for frail and elderly persons in the general home environment. It develops competencies required to provide a comprehensive home-care service in a manner that has regard for life and property.
At the end of the course, the learner will be able to:
- Understand and explain terminology related to older person’s care.
- Understand and explain different levels of care.
- Understand and explain required qualities of a Nurse in Older person’s care.
- Understand the compilation and functions of a care team.
