This booklet provides care managers with an introduction to relationship-centred care and includes ideas for putting this into practice in a care home. These include ideas for motivating staff to engage with residents, personalising the care home environment to reflect residents' lives and interests, positive risk taking and connecting with the wider community. It is designed to accompany the guide for care staff, which offers practical ideas for helping staff to get to know residents better. (Edited publisher abstract)
