Care Support

Care MattersSkills for home care and care homes

Care support skills are the foundation for excellent care practice. It promotes equality and diversity for the service user and colleagues and honours the lifestyle, religion and culture of all human beings.

This program in essence maps with the FETAC level 5 Care Support Module.

Workshops: 4 ½ full days


Malignant social psychology
Psychological needs for every human being
Equality and diversity

Even though it is recommended that social care providers utilise the whole programme, as this will enhance skill, knowledge, practice, attitude and marketing, some organisations may prefer a personal training programme that is linked to service knowledge gaps which are shown in their training needs analysis. The programme is open to all employee members.
