This is a 2 day course - participants must attend both days.
Older residents in aged care facilities and SRS are increasingly frail, have multiple health conditions including dementia and providing support can be challenging and complex. Being able to recognise and report changes in residents’ health early, can prevent admission to hospital. Personal support workers are at the front line and are crucial in the early identify cation of the deteriorating resident. The workshop is intended for personal support coordinators and personal support workers.
This package comprises eight modules and will be taught over 2 days.
Each module supports understanding of:
- How the body system works
- The ageing process and what happens to the body
- How to recognise a change in residents’ health and well being
- How to report these changes verbally and in writing.
