The Care Home Assistant Practitioner Role is still relatively new, but is growing in popularity amongst business owners and care staff. For business owners is provides a skilled workforce able to support the nurses in Nursing Homes, where recruitment of nurses is now a serious problem, by supporting the nurses you enable them to do more 'nursing' and less of the paper based tasks that can take them away from providing the care you residents deserve.
In Residential Homes a CHAP is able to provide the link between the care staff and the District Nurses, ensuring that your residents receive a more seamless service.
The benefit to your carers is the level of satisfaction they receive from achieving a bespoke qualification, that includes a recognised Level 4 qualification, while continuing to meet the needs of your residents and care team. By becoming a CHAP your carers develop the skills they already have to the next level, while being able to provide your residents with the care and attention they need.
Our short courses can be run in your setting at a flat fee with no hidden extras. They cover all of your Mandatory training required by CQC, as well as a range of clinical courses suitable for Carers, HCA's, Associate Nurses and Registered Nurses.
