There are a range of different apprenticeships available within the care industry with a starting point at a Level 2 apprenticeship in Business Administration.
Choosing a care package for yourself or a loved one can be very confusing at times. Search the Internet and you will soon realise people use all sorts of terms to describe different types of care To help cut through the confusion, here are the main types of elderly care available, ranging from a full-time nursing home to just a little home help.
The concept of live-in care – where a carer lives with a loved one in their one home – as an alternative to residential care is not new. In fact St Jude’s Care has been providing such a service for many years. However, this type of care is still not really considered mainstream and it is surprising how many people are unaware of the live-in care as an option – thinking that moving into a care home means leaving home for good.
Moving into a care home can be a stressful experience for your loved one and often comes with a tremendous financial burden. A report published by the Live-In Care Hub contains research and evidence that proves one-to-one care provided by qualified carers in a patient's own home is often far more effective and much less costly than a move to a residential care home.
