St John Ambulance Pattern

Adult Carers Programme

This is a free community course kindly funded by donations and is aimed at those carers who do not receive remuneration. This is not a workplace course for carers working in the care industry.

Within the four sessions of the programme our trainers will provide you with knowledge and skills in an informal atmosphere to assist you with your caring role. Most importantly the attendees will meet other carers and be able to share experiences in a safe environment and have the opportunity to join our Carers Support Group that meets monthly for ongoing support and social activities.

We will cover subjects which include;

  • Role of the carer
  • Reducing the risk of infection
  • Pressure damage
  • Safe handling
  • Looking after yourself as a carer
  • Safety in the home
  • First aid
  • Assistance available from other local organisations.
  • Information on social services, benefits and damentia care
  • Caring for someone with Dementia
