About Elderly First Aid

Elderly First Aid

4 Hours Elderly First Aid Course

Elderly First Aid is designed for caregivers or domestic helpers who want to learn more about how to respond to an elderly if they are injured or suddenly taken ill.

According to the UN’s 2017 World Population Ageing report, Singapore’s population stood at 5.71 million as of 2017, consisting of 855,000 people under the age of 15, and 886,000 people aged 65 and above. Therefore there is a growing demand for caregivers or domestic helpers to learn how to respond to such medical emergency.

First Aid for Elderly will equip you with the basic skills and knowledge to render first aid to an elderly when called upon. In addition, you will also learn to recongize the symptoms of common disease for the elderly. This course is suitable for individual who do not require an accredited certification.

In Singapore, falls are the most common cause of fractures among elderly. Through the course, you will also be able to learn some of the tips to prevent falls as well.

Every 32 minutes, an elderly person turns up at a public hospital emergency department because of an injury from a fall. Each month, about 100 seniors find themselves in hospital, staying a week or more because of such injuries.

And already the number of hip fractures among people aged 50 and older treated at public hospitals has gone up from 1,900 in 2004 to 2,500 last year – with half of them involving seniors aged 80 and up.

What our customers say about our courses

Y. Y. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I’ve attended the First Aid and AED courses at a few providers before and while those were good, what they have at SERA is a whole lot better.

I attended their First Aid and AED refresher course and having attended others before, thought it would be pretty much the standard two day course. At the end of the two days however, I came away from it not only better educated but having really really enjoyed myself! 😀👍

Mark ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I had been to a few places for OFA course, but they were not well-equipped in managing people relationship. SERA has demonstrated as a leader in people-centric. They value my team, our goal for taking up the course and committed to see us through the course successfully. Kudos to you! SERA is indeed a 5 star rated institution. I will be back for more!!! 😀👍

Sally N. X. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

We will like to thank SERA for the 3 days of First Aid and AED courses that were attended by our coaches. SERA management have been super helpful with our last minute request and giving us valuable feedback and updates. We are looking forward for more people to be certified and of course for those who have taken the certificates, we look forward to join back the class 2 years later, before the expiring of our existing certificates. 😀👍
