Caring for adults

2 Developing your interpersonal skills

In your role of supporting others you will often need to communicate with the people you support, as well as with the other people involved in caring for that person.

If you care for someone at home, you may need to speak to social workers or medical professionals, as well as friends, family and neighbours in order to get the right support for that person and for yourself. It is important to make the most of these opportunities, and to do that you may need to develop your interpersonal skills.
