Adult Care Worker Level 2

While you may not be working in a role that directly supports people with mental ill-health, dementia or learning disabilities, it is important for all health or social care workers to be aware of these conditions. This is so that any signs and symptoms that you notice are passed on to other workers and that you show compassion and understanding when you experience any behaviour that you find difficult to understand or respond to.
