Anyone working with vulnerable adults needs to have an understanding of self-neglect and the complex issues that can impact a persons ability to make decisions.
This training will look at how to balance addressing the issue of self-neglect with an individual’s right to private life and health and how to make safe decisions.
Self-neglect is a problem in itself and can often be a symptom of other underlying problems. This course will enable you to identify it and react appropriately.
Self-neglect is difficult to detect due to its multi-dimensional character; it is a complex combination of physical, mental, psychological, social and environmental causes. Being able to spot the signs and symptoms of self-neglect is crucial for anyone who works with vulnerable adults.
The topics covered in this course include:
- The possible causes of self-neglect, whether deliberate or unintentional
- The connection between mental health and self-neglect
- Signs of self-neglect
- How to react upon recognising signs of self-neglect
This courses uses case studies and interactive scenarios and challenges to help test the learners knowledge and ability.

What our clients say
Optimal People and Business are experts in all things HR. We worked successfully with them to produce a series of information videos to help businesses during the Corona lockdown. We are looking forward to working with them again in the near future as we grow our business.
We personally dealt with Vici at Optimal and she was a delight. She was open and honest and gave great advice and guidance. She helped us deal with what could have been a very difficult dismissal with a problematic member of staff. I would not hesitate to recommend Vici to any business for their HR.
Can’t thank Mel and the team enough. Really helped my business in a crisis. Looking forward to working with you and the team.

5* all round, Mel was extremely helpful and answered all my questions, very friendly and professional. Recommended to others and would definitely use again. Thank you again Mel and Helen.
Mel and her team are fantastic, help me all along the way with some complex issues. Couldn't recommend more.
I've used Optimal PBS on a couple of occasions now to assist with due diligence on an acquisition i've been working on and also to provide contract and handbook production. Cannot fault the support or advice provided.
We love this company and Mel is a god send to our business, she sorted everything for us from employee contracts to helping us source the right accountant, she is at the end of the phone whenever I have any HR questions (even when on holiday) can not fault her commitment. Keep up the good work!
