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. You will learn how to communicate respectfully with all clients that you may encounter as a carer, including clients who are wheelchair bound, visually impaired and mentally impaired. Finally, you will learn about the job management skills that carers require to perform their duties efficiently and effectively.
