First Aid for Carers

Tailor this course
First Aid for Life tailored the course to meet our specific needs of dealing with the complexities of caring for an elderly woman with Parkinsons. They came to our home so that we didn’t need to worry about using an agency to care for Nanna. Would recommend this service to anyone who asked.
Robert Brooks

This course deals with accidents and injuries particularly common in the elderly and other groups of people with special needs and requirements.

We will always tailor the course to your requirements and will add elements that are specific to your caring situation, such as our First Aid for Carers course with a family dealing with Parkinsons which focused on the signs and symptons of the condition.

This short course is ideal for carers, and family members or anyone who wants to learn how to help if a vulnerable adult or child is unconscious or suffering from an illness or injury.  
The course covers emergency life support procedures for adults and children as well as commonly occurring injuries and illnesses in those with caring needs.

We will always tailor the course to your requirements so we would love to hear from you if there is anything you would particularly like to focus on.

This course is always adapted to your individual needs, but as a guide we usually cover:

  • Action in an emergency
  • Unconscious breathing casualty (Recovery position)
  • Unconscious not breathing casualty (CPR)
  • Heart attack
  • Stroke
  • Choking and Drowning
  • First Aid kits
  • Bleeding – minor and major
  • Fractures and soft tissue injuries (strains and sprains)
  • Burns and scalds
  • Falls – including Head and Spinal injuries
  • Heat and cold extremes – including Hypothermia

We can add topics such as Anaphylaxis and practical use of auto-injectors, Asthma and Angina management if required.

3 hours typically.

If you have a larger group (13+) or specific caring needs to focus on we allow 4-6 hours teaching time to ensure the time and space for the whole group to benefit from the essential practical scenarios.

Continuous assessment by trainer and scenarios to practice skills.

Certificate valid for 3 years awarded on the day.
