Senior frontline carers – both in HACC and residential settings – are central to making ageing a positive and largely self-managed experience. This training manual seeks to target the advanced care and frontline leadership skills of senior carers. In doing so it reflects the Community Services Training Package competencies for the Certificate IV level award for aged care work.

The Experienced Carer 2e covers all of the compulsory competencies, plus the most popular electives from the new CHC43015 Certificate IV in Ageing Support qualification, as well as CHC40108 Certificate IV in Aged Care.

This new edition now includes learning content on Home and Community Care (HACC) in this context.


Key Features:

  • Learning objectives for each chapter to reflect competency coverage
  • Case studies and activities at the end of each chapter to reinforce key topics
  • “In Practice” vignettes scattered throughout featuring 3 characters from different cultural backgrounds and age groups to enhance their relatability and make the text more relevant to the students
  • Real evacuation scenario – NSW bushfires 2013, illustrating evacuation over a large region
