  • Promoting healthy living, ie, exercise, diet etc.
  • Ensuring the safety of patients, staff, visitors and the public at all times.
  • Motivating patients to reintegrate into the community and community services. For example, you may support a patient to go to the supermarket, gym, dentist and leisure activities. All the things you may take for granted.
