ACCOMMODATION

Our English for Carers Self-Study Course is enables carers with elementary or lower intermediate level English to give safe and effective care. The course covers a wide range of essential areas with a strong focus on looking after patients, including the elderly and confused. Topics include managing pain, pressure area care, dealing with falls, mental health issues, infection control, dealing with elderly patients, taking observations, and managing daily activities, such as toileting, food, drink, and mobility.

Inputs and tasks focus on interactions with patients and nurses, care-specific language, and essential medical and everyday terminology. Learn on the go – the course can be used wherever a learner has an internet connection, allowing study to fit around busy work schedules. Inputs and activities are short and focused, so even 10 minutes will be enough to learn some useful language.
