Daily tasks

This unit contains dialogues related to a number of daily tasks that a care worker may be engaged in within their care responsibilities. The unit includes tasks that represent both formal and informal interactions with colleagues, residents and external agencies. While the example scenarios may not be reflective of any one particular care facility, it is intended that this generic approach provides a suitable vehicle for relevant language acquisition.
