The QQI Level 5 module Care of the Older Person is designed to equip the learner with the skills and knowledge to care for the older person and their specific needs. Learners will demonstrate good work practice, understand the concept of the ageing process, be able to meet the full range of needs of older people in a variety of care settings and enhance the quality of life of the older person. This module is a component of Level 5 Healthcare Support Award (5M4339), but can be taken as a stand-alone piece of learning/CPD.
