lead adult care

This programme has been developed for those providing frontline care to vulnerable adults within the home, daycare centres, residential and nursing homes and some other healthcare settings.

Lead Adult Care Workers are the frontline staff who help adults with care and support needs to achieve their personal goals and live as independently and safely as possible, enabling them to have control and choice in their lives.  In addition, Lead Adult Care Workers have responsibility for providing leadership, guidance and direction at the frontline of care delivery and are instrumental in improving the health and wellbeing of those receiving care and support.  In some circumstances, Lead Adult Care Workers will have delegated responsibility for the standard of care provided and may supervise the work of other care workers.

This programme is suitable for residential or nursing homes, domiciliary care, day centres and some clinical healthcare settings.
