Caring at Home

About the Level 4 Caring at Home Certificate

Many care users need to be cared for in their own homes. In some circumstances this can prove challenging as the carer will not have access to certain facilities or a wider network of support. This level 4 course seeks to educate carers about in-home care and help them to understand the regulations and processes that are in order surrounding practice.

Altogether there are six modules to complete. During these engaging and educational units, students will evaluate the numerous processes involved in home care. First of all learners will find out how to assess care needs in a home environment. They will then learn how to plan and execute specialised care for vulnerable individuals.

Who should study this course?

This course is aimed at anyone with an interest in caring for vulnerable individuals in their own home. Whether you already work in the care industry or you are planning a career change; this course will provide home care training to help you to achieve your goals.

At learndirect, we don’t ask that you have any prior qualifications or experience before you enrol on one of our distance learning courses. As long as you have an interest in social care, a passion for learning and access to the internet, you are welcome on board.

What happens after the course?

By the end of your home learning course, you will be familiar with the processes involved in home care. If you enjoyed studying this online course, you may decide to pursue further education or gain an accredited social work degree.
