|CHC33015||Certificate III in Individual Support (Ageing)||
This qualification reflects the role of workers in the community and/or residential setting who follow an individualised plan to provide person-centred support to people who may require support due to ageing, disability or some other reason. Work involves using discretion and judgement in relation to individual support as well as taking responsibility for own outputs. Workers have a range of factual, technical and procedural knowledge, as well as some theoretical knowledge of the concepts and practices required to provide person-centred support.
|CHC43015||Certificate IV in Ageing Support||
This qualification reflects the role of support workers who complete specialised tasks and functions in aged services; either in residential, home or community based environments. Workers will take responsibility for their own outputs within defined organisation guidelines and maintain quality service delivery through the development, facilitation and review of individualised service planning and delivery.
Workers may be required to demonstrate leadership and have limited responsibility for the organisation and the quantity and quality of outputs of others within limited parameters.
Both our Melbourne Cert 3 Aged Care and Cert 4 Age Care qualifications reflect the role of support workers who complete specialised tasks and functions in aged services; either in residential, home or community-based environments.
As a personal care worker, you will provide holistic care in the form of personal, physical, emotional and spiritual care to people who require assistance with daily living tasks. Daily living tasks can cover areas such as such as showering, dressing, and eating, assisting with outings and social activities. The level of assistance provided will depend on the needs and preferences of the client as documented in their individual plan. All duties are carried out under the supervision of the person in charge.
