Saving Social Care

Saving Social Care, now in it's second edition, is a book about solving one of the biggest challenges we face: how to provide enough quality care for an ageing society? More specifically, it gives practical help and advice to care employers on who to look for as their next frontline care employee, where to find them, how to screen them and, critically, 20 great ways of keeping them.

Saving Social Care is not a book about theory. It’s meant to be your companion as you recruit and manage your caring workforce to keep pace with rapidly growing demand. Well-thumbed and with your notes and comments in the margins.
