New guidance says that visits from carers to older people in their homes in England should last for at least half an hour. In some cases carers are currently only able to spend five minutes on each visit. They make the visits to help these older people with tasks such as washing, dressing, eating and taking their medication. Because of the lack of time the carers have for each visit they often have time to carry out only one or two of these activities.

It has taken a bit longer than anticipated but we are absolutely delighted to launch the Rankein Scale. This new and revolutionary assessment will help care based employers,employees and candidates match up. It will help improve the quality of care. The Rankein Scale is a measure of Emotional Intelligence that relates to the caring sector. Unlike most measurement tools which examine general Emotional Intelligence, the Rankein Scale focusses entirely on issues that are specific to caring scenarios.
