Caring for older people – expert advice

Posted on December 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

Enthusiasm and concern count for a lot when caring for older people, but with expert advice they can count for a whole lot more. Age Concern says its range of Care Professional handbooks and training packs provide expert advice and guidance for all care professionals working with older people. “The handbooks are written for staff and managers working with older people in health, housing and social care services,” says the charity. “They range from a guide to working with people with dementia, to an exploration of advance directives and living wills. As well as guidance and advice they contain details of best practice and informative case studies.” The training packs are designed for care home managers who want to run in-house training sessions to guide, develop and reinforce their staff¹s skills and contain all the materials needed to do this. Packs include key point overhead transparencies, aims and objectives, teaching plans, group activities, support material and photocopiable handouts. – For further info
