Whether you are a dedicated carer, a loved one, a family member or just a friend, the help you can give to someone in need helps removes a substantial burden of the day-to-day necessities of maintaining a home.
Their needs could be minor or rather more complex, they could be recovering from an operation (post-operative) which limits their mobility, or because of age they are finding the day-to-day activities increasingly more arduous. But because of a range of factors, both physical and medical, their capacity to fight infections has diminished, so domestic cleaning must be two-fold: the highest cleaning standard and infection control minded.
The cleaning and infection control steps taken in the home to protect vulnerable people from infections are a major part in the quality of care provided. Infections acquired can have serious, and in some case, life-threatening, implications to both the patient and to the carer.
Here is a unique course that combines the highest quality training in domestic cleaning with the critical knowledge of infection control and prevention. These two areas of study together will enable someone to clean a home or residence to the highest standard and reduce the likelihood transmitting an infection to a vulnerable person.
