Are you currently looking after your parents or grandparents? Or do you work in the aged care industry and want to upgrade your knowledge and skills? If so, this is a perfect course for you.
"I've been taking leave to care for my sick grandparents. I wasn't expecting to find a course that could help me deal with my current situation, but when I did I was so relieved. It's been so useful and I now feel much more prepared to deal with the coming months ahead. Thank you so much." - Vanessa
