An expert webinar next month will offer tips on how care homes can stay strong, safe and supportive during COVID-19.
Workforce management platform Planday will team up with experts from across the UK healthcare sector to offer healthcare businesses exclusive insights and tips for staying strong and safe during COVID-19 on Tuesday 2 June, from 3:00pm.
With more than 350,000 people using Planday every day — with a growing proportion of those coming specifically from UK care home operators — its UK and Ireland Partner Manager Kevin Ryan (pictured) told Care Home Professional the free webinar will go beyond the headlines to give care home managers and operators a deeper insight into what healthcare businesses are doing right now, as well as practical tips for caring for workers’ mental health.
“It’s been amazing to see the community support for healthcare workers right across the UK over the past couple of weeks,” Kevin said.
“We’re really proud to work with healthcare businesses and the people who work in them supporting them as they do such an amazing job caring for residents and patients when they need it most.
“But the healthcare businesses I speak to everyday tell me COVID-19 has radically changed the industry and it’s never been more important to get the right information and advice to manage your care home or healthcare business in a smarter and safer way.
“That’s why I’m teaming up with experts from The Disabilities Trust, Monsi Projects, Graham Care and Avondale Care in a free webinar to discuss some ways your business can adapt for the present and prepare for the unknown future with practical tips you can use today.”
As well as practical advice to make better decisions with your own data, the webinar will share insights on how to adapt to the changing face of social care and tips for which investments you should consider right now.
Kevin said the expert panel will also dig deeper into how healthcare businesses should help care for their employees’ mental health.
“Supporting people’s mental health in the healthcare industry is always important, but as COVID-19 puts additional pressure on so much of the sector, it’s vital that healthcare businesses do everything they can to help,” he said.
“Our expert panel will discuss what this means at the grassroots level and share tips for looking after your most important asset — your people.
“Join us from 1500 BST on 2 June and make sure your healthcare business stays strong and safe during COVID-19.”
