Personal Care Needs

Learners will gain knowledge and  understanding by successfully completing the units required. As we see  an increasingly ageing population, the number of adults needing  around-the-clock care is on the rise. As well as the need for medical  care, there is also a need for high levels of personal care to allow  those who need support to live as comfortably as possible. This  qualification focuses on developing a person-centred approach to  delivering high levels of personal care.
