    Inspection inside out - Health declarations and your CQC New Manager application

    Inspection inside out - Health declarations and your CQC New Manager application

    In episodes 1 and 2 , we looked at what you need to do to become a registered manager.
    We have looked at what it means to be fit to be a manager, what skills and qualifications you need, and now we will tackle health.
    This is the area that I find people get concerned about. You are asked within the process to sign a declaration to say you are fit and healthy for the job and to give your GPs details.

    In this episode, Abi is going to walk you through the law, CQC guidance for providers, what you should expect in an interview and more!

    Death and Bereavement : Person centred support for relatives and friends

    Death and Bereavement : Person centred support for relatives and friends

     Losing someone you love can be extremely traumatic. It can also be a huge relief depending on the circumstances. It is not the same for everyone, and we cannot predict how relatives or significant people to the person who has died may feel.
    This isn’t about being a fully qualified bereavement practitioner. This isn’t about having all the answers. This is all about what you know - a person-centred response to human emotions.

    A few tipis by our care expert, Abi Spence:
    Treat the person with dignity and respect, create space and privacy for them. Let the person know where you are taking them, and what happens nextNever presume you know the person or how they feel. They may never have visited, you may have been told things by the person who has died, but this does not mean you know the relationship or how they feelObserve what is happening - Observing sensitively enables you to gain a little insight into how that person may be experiencing their first emotions relating to death
