Adult Care Certificate
After the success of the care certificate program targeting 17-19 year olds a new program has been launched specifically for adults of any age looking to gain healthcare knowledge and skills.
Location: ellenor, Coldharbour Road, Gravesend, DA11 7HQ
Who's the course for?
Anyone who has some time to share and who wants to volunteer to support patient care in a practical way. No previous care experience necessary, just a caring compassionate approach and willingness to learn.
Aims and Objectives
Care Volunteers will be able to experience various departments here at the hospice and decide where they feel best placed to work. Working through an assigned workbook volunteers will be expected to attend training at the hospice at least once a week for 4 hours, with full support being provided for the work book. The course is expected to run for approximately 8 weeks. To become a care volunteer requires no experience nor qualifications, all you need to bring is your hands, heart and commitment.
Due to the nature of the course and as learning groups are run consecutively there is no set date as to when the next program will start.
