What is health and social care?
When you work in health and social care, you will be working with vulnerable individuals. They will range in age from birth to elderly, they may have disabilities, illness or be vulnerable due to personal or social situations.
The bond between a health and social care practitioner and their client is special: You will need to be able to build a relationship and trust between you. So, it is important to be able to communicate the way they prefer, treat them in a person-centred way and help support them to achieve whatever they wish.
