Ivy Care Homes has been a successful venture thus far owing to capable management and a highly competent team. For easier running and coordination, all the four homes are managed by a General Manager who is extensively informed in the field of learning disabilities and running of care homes. Each home is managed by a Service Manager who is assisted by the Deputy Manager. Their primary role is to ensure that everything is done according to the provisions of the care home, in addition to ensuring that there is consistency with the requirements of the institution. Also, each home has a support team that works in tandem with the management to promote the needs of the patients. The Care Quality Commission inspects the homes occasionally to make sure that quality care is met.
In pursuit of quality and personalized care, Ivy Care Homes ensure that the staff is sufficient to take care of the needs of the patients.
