Care workers with responsibility for a number of service users have generally undergone extensive training in areas such as medication dispensation, infection control and nutrition awareness. These and many other areas are all vital to keep residents or patients safe and healthy. However, just as important to quality of life for people in care environments is regular, stimulating activity.
Activities coordinators in care environments are often just as important as care workers and nurses, as they ensure that the people under their care develop and retain the skills they need to experience excellent quality of life.
By undergoing an activities coordinator training course, you will learn about:
• The role of the activities coordinator and its importance
• Ways in which service users and their families can help to plan and provide activities
• The importance of assessing the needs and abilities of service users before planning activities
• The different activities that can be planned for varying groups of service users
This kind of care training course is not only intended for those who aim to take on an activities coordinator role; it can be useful for all staff working in care environments.
