Facebook for care providers
What is described as the first exclusive and private Facebook community to enable owners, chief executives and senior managers of residential care and nursing homes to share best practice was launched in October.
Sixty members have already joined the Facebook “Care Home Owners And Managers” group which has been set up to enable members to pass on advice and learn from each other.
Topics discussed so far include CQC regulation and recommendations for policy and procedures. Members of the free group include owners of residential and specialist care providers, operation and human resource managers, and registered managers.
“The aim of the group is – pure and simple – to enable owners and senior managers to share best practice,” said the group’s founder, Adam James of Springup PR, a specialist PR agency for care providers.
“Because the Care Home Owners And Managers group is closed it means only other members can post, see and respond to comments. This ensures it’s a genuinely exclusive and private community.
“Plus, in order to join the group you have to answer questions to confirm you are a bona fide owner, chief executive or senior manager. This means that any third-party suppliers seeking to promote themselves will be blocked.”
