In the November Care Home Management magazine podcast, sponsored by Edify Training, our editor Ailsa Colquhoun talks to Gary Shearin, interim ceo at the Care Workers’ Charity about its new Beating Heart of Care report which covers the thoughts of more than 200 care workers and leaders.
It looks at key issues around remuneration, mental health, care demands at home and good management which affect retention and recruitment.
Also, presenter Alan Rustad finds out from Care UK’s dementia expert Suzanne Mumford what happened when residents at the group’s Sherwood Grange home were given the opportunity to draw a nude model as part of their art class.
In our supplier spot, Steve Hemsley talks to Morten Mathiesen from care planning company Sekoia about the benefits of digitalisation in terms of saving care workers and providers time by removing manual processes. This means more time for quality care for residents.
We also review the latest edition of Care Home Management magazine which is out now and covers health and safety, management technology and insurance as well as the latest best practice news.
