Caring for Older People

Holistic Health Care

A Distance Learning Course of 7 Lessons

 
Course Description
 

The care of older people is a complex and skilled branch of health care. To be effective, carers need to be knowledgeable, flexible and positive in their interventions. This course's objectives are based on the idea that care of older people needs to be holistic. This means that in order to be effective a carer must consider the client from biological, psychological and sociological viewpoints.

It is essential to underpin this holistic assessment with an insight into the relationships between the client's individual needs and the attitudes and resources that currently exist in the UK. In each session you will find activities which help you to explore both the situation experienced by the older person and your own beliefs and value systems.
