Caring for adults is an introductory course for anyone in a caring role, either paid or unpaid. It builds on what you already know to give you a better understanding of your role as a carer. It also supports your own well-being by giving you some ideas and information about looking after yourself and dealing with stress.
This course is free and you are welcome to study it without enrolling. However, the course gives you the opportunity to earn digital badges as a recognition of your learning. To collect these badges you’ll need to enrol. If you already have an Open University account, you need to sign in before you enrol. Otherwise, it’s easy to create an account.
