The population of older people in Ireland is increasing, as are the numbers who require residential care. This growth has to be matched by an increase in competent, caring Healthcare Assistants, in order to meet the demands of our aging population. According to the independent regulatory body HIQA, all staff employed by nursing homes or home-care organisations "must have the necessary skills, appropriate to their role, to provide care and support to residents and to coordinate care effectively with other organisations and professionals."
Modules Care Skills (5N2770) and Care of The Older Person (5N2706) are component modules (minor awards) of the Healthcare Support certificate Major Award QQI Level 5 (5M4339).
The duration of each module is 3 weeks (1 study day per week).
The total cost of one module is €100.
In 2021 we will start a number of groups, detailed schedules TBC.
The purpose of this programme is to enable the learner to acquire the knowledge, skill, and competence to work in a variety of healthcare settings and or to progress to further and or higher education and training.
