Care Managers

A Care Manager is considered the linchpin to any home through being responsible for the day-to-day running of a care or nursing home in its entirety. Running the care home on a daily basis usually results in Care Managers quickly becoming an integral part of both the home and the staffing team.

Summary of Role

Through regular communication with residents, families and staff, Care Managers are not only expected to possess excellent interpersonal skills, but also a strong business acumen with matters involving budgets, policies and staff management.

Additionally, knowledge of care principles and regulations, skills in care planning and assessment, and awareness of local authorities and the Care Quality Commission (CQC) are all fundamental aspects of the role.

Typical Duties

  • Managing healthcare team within the home
  • Ensuring that all residents and families are well informed, advised correctly and given adequate support
  • Monitoring and reporting care home performance
  • Fundraising, negotiating contracts and working within the home’s budget
  • Ensure current and future compliance with independent regulators (CQC, HSE etc.)
  • Developing new ways to promote residents rights and responsibilities
  • Training, recruitment and supervision of new staff coming into the home
