Skills for Care has launched a wellbeing guide to support registered managers and care home managers to better manage their own professional and personal wellbeing.
The new guide, ‘Wellbeing for registered managers; a practical survival guide’ is available to registered manager members of Skills for Care, introduces registered managers to the ‘five ways to wellbeing’: connect, be active, take notice, keep learning and give, as well as practical information, top tips, case studies, action plans and workbook exercises.
Skills for Care CEO, Sharon Allen, commented: “Registered managers quite rightly take pride in their ability to care for others; it’s what they’re good at, but they can often neglect their own wellbeing. This guide recognises that this high profile role is sometimes tough and challenging and that compromising personal health and wellbeing isn’t really an option.”
Bill Mumford, Skills for Care Fellow and co-author of the guide added: “There’s a growing body of evidence that shows our ability to care for others is significantly reduced when we’re feeling out of sorts ourselves.”
