The Certificate III in Individual Support is a qualification that provides students with the ability to support patients who are in nursing homes, hospitals or clinics due to ageing, disability or some other reason.
Workers will be expected to perform a range of tasks which may include: following care plans to provide care to clients, assisting with personal care (showering, bathing, shaving, toileting, oral hygiene, dressing), assisting with meals and feeding, assisting clients to move around, assisting with lifting and turning clients who are immobile or confined to bed and communicating with families.
The job role requires a person who is patient, has good communication skills, uses discretion and judgement, has a commitment to the rights of the elderly and disabled people to live dignified lives and who takes responsibility for their own outputs.
There are no entry requirements for this qualification. However, it is expected that students will have appropriate language, literacy and numeracy skills to complete the training and assessment requirements.
