Many social workers and other staff working within Social Services lack the precise knowledge to properly advise clients on financial assessments, which can inadvertently lead to complaints, debt, and inaccurate assessments. Our course can help you avoid these problems.
In this course, we’ll take a look at financial assessments in a variety of settings such as home care, extra care, residential care or supported accommodation. We’ll also examine deferred payment agreements and how they can be used as a tool to prevent residents from being forced to sell their home to meet the cost of their care.
This 3 hour overview course has been specifically designed to equip socialworkers with the understanding they need to better advise their clients.
Social workers, support workers, debt advisers, welfare advisers, care providers and anyone who wants to understand how the financial assessments system for social care works.
Please note that we have a different course for Financial Assessment Officers.
This course is delivered ‘live on-line’ with a trainer and can be accessed via a PC, Mac or Tablet. With live online, you can interact, ask questions and practice new skills – all without leaving your desk! Perfect for dispersed teams working from home.
