Caring make a difference in the lives of people
Course Overview

This qualification reflects the role of workers in the community and/or residential setting who follow an individualised plan to provide person-centred support to people who may require support due to ageing, disability or some other reason.

Work involves using discretion and judgement in relation to individual support as well as taking responsibility for own outputs. Workers have a range of factual, technical and procedural knowledge, as well as some theoretical knowledge of the concepts and practices required to provide person-centred support.

"My dream was to serve the aged people of Australia while living here. I was able to achieve it because of HOPE. The program contains an excellent support from the trainers. Trainers made me understand each and every step very carefully so that I can handle and look after the aged people in a manner that they feel like homely affair. That homelike atmosphere is one of the most attractive points about HOPE".
