Domiciliary Care Toolkit App
Mobile App designed for domiciliary care workers, supported living workers and their managers. It can also be used families and individuals who are supporting individuals in receipt of domiciliary care services.
The App has been developed and produced by the Northern Ireland Social Care Council in partnership with domiciliary care providers; Bryson Care and Extra Care, representatives from the Belfast Health and Social Care Trust, the Safeguarding Board, the Regulation and Quality Improvement Authority (RQIA), the Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE), the DHSSPS/DoH and Dementia Together NI/A Delivering Social Care Change project.
Every year workers complete mandatory and workplace training. If they are not immediately putting this learning and knowledge into practice they may not be able to remember what to do when a situation arises. The App provides information in a succinct/bite size format and acts as a quick reference tool to help refresh learning, as and when the worker needs it.
Included in the App is information on standards and values, safeguarding, health and wellbeing and dementia, delirium and palliative care. There are also scenario based exercises from practice and relevant videos and other information to enhance understanding and improve service delivery.
The App is available on IOS/Apple Iphones, IPads, Android Smart phones and tablets from iTunes and Google Play .
