Care home managers are among the most satisfied at work, UK Care Week survey finds

Care home managers are among the most satisfied in their role but care home workers are among the least.

That is a key finding of a survey held to promote UK Care Week conference and exhibition, due to take place at the NEC, Birmingham on 22-23 March.

The  National Care Awareness Survey  makes the following findings:

  • 80 per cent of respondents satisfied with their salary
  • 73 per cent plan to stay in the care sector in the next 12 months
  • 81 per cent confident in their ability to sustain business over the next year
  • 51 per cent feel that recognition of workers is an area of concern
  • 89 per cent affected by the cost-of-living crisis
  • 75 per cent feel supported by the system

When asked for key recommendations for improving care, respondents said:

  • Improve care quality – focus of reform
  • Recognise workers
  • Prioritise employee wellbeing and funding

10 per cent of respondents were care home managers.
