Supporting Older Persons Course

Courtesy of River City Press, 19/12/02

Taking part in a 12 week programme entitled ‘Support of the Older Person’ has been a very rewarding experience for adult students Sandra Wallace and Maria Kahaki.

The course gives the students as opportunity to gain 33 credits out of a total of 69 towards the NZQA National Certificate in Support of the Older Person. Once the formal part of the course has been completed, students are given placement in a rest home or care facility and they are monitored in the work place for two months.
