Single-handed Care Masterclass – Maidstone, Kent

September 7, 2017

With budgets and money being tight across the country and an ever-increasing need for care, many organisations are moving towards the single handed care approach. With many examples of cost savings and better outcomes for the service user from local authorities who have implemented single handed care projects, it is likely that professionals will need to be skilled at assessing for these packages for the future.

This masterclass gives an overview of the benefits and concerns of single handed care and a taster into the skills and techniques required to deliver a robust single handed care package.
