Rochcare has always championed attainable mental health practices and daily positive wellbeing for all our teams, those we care for and the families and professionals we work closely alongside.
World Mental Health Day 2021 (October 10th) allows us the opportunity to reflect upon the integral work we currently do to support the mental health of our stakeholders, what more we could be doing to support them, as well as being the perfect opportunity to introduce our new employee wellness partners, Health Assured.
Rochcare believes in supporting every individual’s mental health in ways that are most appropriate to them. We’re proud that our staff, those we care for, and their families, have platforms to share their thoughts, opinions and needs with us in a safe and encouraging environment. We do this with ‘Let’s talk’ sessions for staff, focus groups for the people in our care, and regularly encouraging family members to give feedback via carehome.co.uk.
The feedback gathered from these platforms influences the ways we manage and run all of our services. We actively seek out the feedback and experiences of these groups so that we can reflect and make positive changes to ensure the care and service we provide is the very best standard.
Our employee wellness partner, Health Assured, is the UK and Ireland’s largest independent and award-winning employee assistance programme (EAP) provider. Health Assured is a free service available to all Rochcare employees and gives them access to a 24/7, 365 helpline, with calls answered by experienced in-house counsellors, legal and financial specialists. As well as access to this counselling service, the Health Assured app provides proactive wellbeing tools and engaging features to enhance the user’s mental, physical and financial health by using personal metrics, personalised content and four-week plans to set goals and celebrate achievements.
On this World Mental Health Day, we’d like to thank all our hard-working care teams and express our continued commitment to them to curate a healthy working environment that supports their mental health and wellbeing in and outside of their workplace.
