Senior frontline carers – both in HACC and residential settings – are central to making ageing a positive and largely self-managed experience. This training manual seeks to target the advanced care and frontline leadership skills of senior carers. In doing so it reflects the Community Services Training Package competencies for the Certificate IV level award for aged care work.

The Experienced Carer 2e covers all of the compulsory competencies, plus the most popular electives from the Certificate IV in Aged Care, with detailed mapping documents to accompany. This new edition now includes learning content on Home and Community Care (HACC) in this context.
