The social care sector is growing larger each year. There are now over 1.5 million paid care workers and a staggering 6.5 million unpaid carers in the UK.
With this many carers involved, there is a pressing need to provide them with support and standardise care. Our carer’s video libraries, learning management systems and other resources enable carers to access a wide range of health information. The video below highlights just how effective these resources can be in the social care sector.
How our videos have supported two key social care projects
The Torbay Community Carers Project
The Torbay Community Carers Project is an initiative run by Health and Care Videos, commissioned by Torbay Council, to standardise and improve social care in the local area.
This project aims to do this by supporting local carers by giving them access to variety of free and supportive resources. These include video libraries and events, along with an elearning programme to encourage a career in paid social care.
These resources will enable patients and carers to take control of their care, in the home setting. As a result, the aim is to reduce hospital admissions, improve discharge from hospital and offer support to carers and care organisations across Torbay.
Digitising the Care Certificate
On request by Torbay and South Devon NHS Foundation Trust, Health and Care Videos digitised and set up a video based elearning programme based on the 15 modules of the Care Certificate, to make it easier for carers to understand and access.
The full Care Certificate training course offers an in-depth guidance for carers including mentor support videos, knowledge videos and a range of quizzes to encourage learning. It is now being offered by the Trust to the 400 care homes in the region alongside many of their other mandatory and Apprenticeship courses in health and social care.
