Carer Training

Iris House has developed our own special needs carer training. The two day training runs on a Friday and Saturday and covers the theory necessary to ensure high standards of care. This is then followed by compulsory practical training in our hospice and at community sits under the guidance of a senior carer or our nurse. Once a carer is deemed confident they are allowed to do sits and hospice session on their own (please note this is dependent on the level of the carer and can take up to six weeks) Carers are also given level one first aid training and equipped with uniforms, toy boxes and care bags.
