Today's interview is with Helen Sanderson, the founder of Wellbeing Teams. Her approach to home care may be radically different to anything you've ever heard, and that's why she's winning all kinds of awards and recently gained the Outstanding rating in her first CQC inspection.
The ideas that Helen shares in her interview do not just apply to home care. No matter what type of service you are in, you will find something to take away from this episode.
We discuss her difficult registration process, what makes Wellbeing Teams different, the inspection itself and what the plans for the future are. Helen also shares a lot of book recommendations which are all linked below.
I have a feeling you'll be listening to this episode twice!
Helen references Buurtzorg, a Dutch model of care which you can read about here
