Research the need for two care workers in a community setting

Project Status: Archive
People Involved: Rosemary Kayess, Karen Fisher
Research Areas: Disability
Funding Agency: NSW Human Services - Ageing, Disability & Home Care (ADHC)

The project investigates the requirement for two workers (rather than one) in a community-care setting. ADHC needs to clarify the current operation of service providers’ two-person care policies: to assess the risks given as reasons for the policies; to establish the possible use of equipment and technological solutions and their cost; and to develop training and guidelines.
