National Care Homes Congress recruit Community Integrated Care
Sue McLean, Community Integrated Care’s Director of Care Services and Outcomes, will be showcasing innovative new approaches to care home recruitment, when she delivers a presentation at The 6th National Care Homes Congress.
Taking place on the 9th July 2013 at Clarendon Suites, Birmingham, the National Care Homes Congress is recognised as a leading care sector event, focused on sharing best-practice in care homes for older people.
Sue’s presentation, “Recruiting Carers Who Really Care: Using Assessment Centres in Dementia Care Homes”, demonstrates how homes should think differently about recruitment to better identify candidates who have compassion, emotional intelligence and empathy.
Delivering a case study based upon recruitment at our pioneering EachStep Blackley dementia service in Manchester, Sue will explain how by using modern assessment centre techniques, services can identify recruits who have the exceptional personal skills that can enable people with dementia to thrive.
Sue McLean says, “The success of any care home in delivering true relationship-centred care depends upon it employing a staff team with strong values, natural empathy and an ambition to continually learn.”
She continues, “My presentation will explain how any dementia care service can better recruit staff with the right values and compassion, and will demonstrate how in doing so, you can create a care home with the right culture.”
