Routes Healthcare Training Requirements

I am sure many of you watched Panorama’s ‘Behind Closed Doors: Elderly Care Exposed’.

It showed the lives of some elderly and vulnerable people blighted by poor care. It was extremely

distressing to see the abuse that took place.


At Routes Healthcare every member of our staff attends 4 Training Courses before working with any adult or child.

One of the Mandatory Courses is a Safeguarding Vulnerable Adults Course. The course highlights and reviews all types of abuse, possible indications

that a client maybe being abused and how to deal with this situation.  Not all abuse is so obvious and much time is spent looking at the more subtle or potential aspects that go unnoticed.

Routes Healthcare staff are required to complete this training annually to ensure their knowledge is current and to keep the subject matter top of the mind.  It is imperative

they are alert to the signs of abuse.


We strongly encourage our staff if they have any concerns to report them without delay.


As the Training Manager for Routes Healthcare I am the company’s advocate for ensuring awareness, knowledge and confidence to highlight such a topic is communicated thoroughly. 


If you would like any more information or even interested in joining one of our Safeguarding Vulnerable Adults Courses or you please do contact me  Training@RoutesHealthcare.com
