Our 3rd group of Frail Care learners for 2016 enjoyed their 6 weeks of theory training with Elbeth Henning, a former matron from a reputable private hospital group.
Elbeth took the learners through a gruelling 6 weeks of training preparing them for the crucial practical component of the course. Each week learners were given an opportunity to practice their skills and finetune various procedures as the class visited various frail care institutions with whom we have a relationship.
A visit to Huis Aristea was done to review some of the procedures like preparing a patient for meals; taking care of a patient with temperature; and Pressure care.
A visit to Green Pastures gave the learners some insight into dealing with patients with Alzheimers and Dementia.
