Our local care management teams provide expertise and support to our carers, enabling them to deliver outstanding home care to our clients and their families. Unlike many care providers, we place a huge emphasis on the local presence of our care management teams ensuring that we deliver truly local support to our care teams.
We also have a ‘decentralised’ way of working, whereby we ensure that responsibility always lies with the local branch for its local geographical area. This means that our care management teams have the autonomy and responsibility to make the best decisions and truly embed our service in the local area.
Our care management teams are made up of:
- Registered Branch Managers – overall responsibility for smooth running of the branch
- Care Managers – providing day-to-day support to our staff, clients and their families
- Senior Carers – providing community-based support to our staff and clients and administration support to the care management team
- Recruitment & Community Managers – ensuring we recruit and train the best people and building links in the local community
