Introduction to Caregiving

Course Level 1: Introductory

Estimated Study Time: 1-2 hours

As people get older, their abilities to perform the everyday tasks that many of us take for granted diminish. Carers need to be available to provide those individuals with the help and assistance that they require to live as independently as possible.

This course will help you develop the fundamental skills used by carers during their day-to-day duties.  The course begins by discussing the fundamental roles and responsibilities of a carer. You will learn about the basic legal and ethical issues of providing care and develop an understanding of the importance of confidentiality in the caregiving process. You will then learn about the skills necessary to ensure that you can communicate effectively with all members of the care service team.
