In 2018/19, 6, 502 beds were added to the UK elderly care sector but 6,459 beds were also removed despite the population of 85+ increasing by 8% in 5 years. Looking at the closed homes, two-thirds of closed English homes were rated ‘inadequate’ or ‘requires improvement’ by the Care Quality Commission.” *More than ever, home managers need as much help as possible to keep their CQC ratings high and stay financially viable.
In his 3rd book on care home leadership, the author shifts his focus from culture and strategy to meet the needs of aspiring and new home managers. In this book, we cover much of what you need to know about landing that home manager’s job – and, once you’ve secured it, how to perform your duties to meet the standards of both the Care Quality Commission and the needs of your residents. *Paraphrased from Knight Frank report dated 05.07.19 ‘Healthcare: Elderly care homes are closing at a time of surging demand’
