Skills for Care

Skills for Care The adult social care sector in England employs more than 1.5 million people, including carers supporting people living independently or in care homes. Skills for Care works with employers to share good practice and raise the standards of care. The Skills for Life website is a useful resource for nurses working with care workers. It has a section on skills such as assisting and moving, and end of life care. There is comprehensive information on key areas of care such as infection prevention and control, dementia, autism and mental health. The publications section offers guides and toolkits on subjects ranging from autism and challenging behaviour to a learning development framework for assisted living services and common core principles for dignity. Many of these resources are free. The site also provides information for people who wish to employ their own personal assistants, using their direct payments or a personal budget, and how to manage them. This site is informative and engaging, with a great deal of background on the adult social care sector. There are also videos of real-life stories from the adult care sector that are inspiring and touching. www.skillsforcare.co.uk http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Nursing Standard Royal College of Nursing (RCN)
