In our last blog we spoke about caring about complaints. On the same theme of care our clinical lead Joanne Percival wanted to discuss as importantly about caring for yourself. Joanne has many years experience in helping and managing people so understands the pressures they face in health and social care.
As registered managers, care support and healthcare workers you are on the frontline of caring for people. Care staff are often the difference between care services running smoothly or having real staffing issues because of their own health related problems.
For this reason, and many others, it is important that your look after yourself so you can look after others. A resilient care workforce is vital for care services, and your own well-being.
