We believe that for our PAs to deliver the highest possible standards of care for our client it is essential that we equip those PAs with the best training possible – to give them knowledge and understanding of spinal injury; practical skills that are transferable to all client situations and the confidence to undertake their duties in the most professional manner.
To meet these requirements care agency Origin has spent years developing its own highly specialised, five day induction training programme rather than patch together bits from existing social and healthcare training packages which do not address the specific and complex needs of those with spinal injuries. Origin’s specialist course, Care of the Individual with Spinal Injury is regarded as the leading course of its kind in the UK.
Externally and independently validated the training course is quality accredited and assesses the knowledge and understanding of each participant who will become an Origin PA. This means clients and their families can have added confidence in the care services we offer and in the competence of the individuals who undertake the role of Origin PA.
We know that happy PAs make for happy clients which is why as a live-in care agency we endeavour to give PAs the best possible working experience with the best rates of pay, regular and flexible work patterns, refresher training and even further opportunities for external training that will help them build their career.
