The latest issue of Home Care Insight magazine is now available to read online in digital format.
This edition of the magazine, which is free to access, is jam packed with industry insight, business advice and exclusive interviews to help home care providers stay up to date on sector knowledge.
The owners of Radfield Home Care star on the cover of the October issue. Fresh from winning a major franchise award, brother-and-sister duo Dr Hannah MacKechnie and Alex Green discuss their inspiration for moving into the home care sector, their ethical approach to franchising and their ambitions to embrace technology, retain a quality workforce and expand their network across the UK.
We also look behind the scenes of a supported housing service run by Be Caring in Newcastle. The provider has been praised by Care England and GMB, the union for care workers, for exemplifying ethical commissioning practices, which could pave the way for change in the social care sector.
Technology is a major theme in this latest edition of Home Care Insight, with Tunstall Healthcare managing director Gavin Bashar explaining the potential for telecare to change the lives of vulnerable people; Digital Social Care project lead Katie Thorn advising on how to overcome the challenges of going digital; and CQC chief inspector of Adult Social Care Kate Terroni discussing how technology can enhance the quality of care.
The CEO of the United Kingdom Homecare Association also features in this issue, explaining why it’s a “hugely exciting time” for the home care industry despite the challenges related to funding and staff retention.
Plus, we share the conference and exhibitor highlights that visitors can expect from the Care Show, set to take place in Birmingham on October 9-10.
On the first evening of the show, Home Care Insight and our sister title Care Home Professional will reveal the winners of the Leaders in Care Awards 2019. And the list of finalists can be found in the magazine.
