Additional information
People in the UK now have an average life expectancy of 72 years. The population aged 65 years and over is growing faster than the working age population aged 16 to 64 years; but not everyone remains healthy throughout their longer lives. This is something you will look at in more detail during this course when learning what types of care an elderly person may need currently and at the end of their life. Throughout this qualification, learners will develop their knowledge and understanding of working in elderly care. This course includes information on the principles of elderly care, health issues affecting the elderly, individual rights, and communication.
