How do we provide training?
We can provide training on health and wellness skills either in group setting or one-on-one. Once we understand the needs of your child and their carers, we are able to design a tailored course to meet these. We can also provide generic training if this is required.
Throughout our training, we use learning packages and written procedures that have been developed for carers and Support Workers to follow. We use scenario training and practice on a mannequins to build confidence and proficiency.
Once the Support Worker or carer is ready, our nursing team will supervise the delivery of care for a child. This allows parents and carers to have greater confidence in the skills needed to keep your child safe and deliver the care and support that they need.
