Welcome to our Family & Friends
Dear Family & Friends
What a wonderful summer we have all enjoyed with the return of live entertainment in our Homes and special occasions where families have been reconnecting with loved ones during sun-filled afternoons in our gardens. It has been such a tonic for us all to see smiles on residents’ faces and hear plenty of shared laughter at these social events.
As we now look towards autumn, we are planning for an equally fabulous festive period for everyone to enjoy and be part of. As ever, we have a full calendar of activities planned to help us celebrate – from mince pies and sherry Christmas Lights Switch On events, to fun competitions for residents, staff and families to get involved with.
Over the past few months we have been inviting residents to become increasingly involved in how we live life in our Homes and I am delighted to report that we now have Resident Ambassadors in each Home. A special thank you goes out to these residents who have so kindly decided to be part of this.
In terms of our staff teams, you may well be aware that we took the decision to increase rates for all our front-line caring staff who have worked so tirelessly caring for your loved ones over the past year in particular, and I know you will agree this increase is justly deserved.
Finally, I am thrilled to add that Morris Care has just been recognised at national level in the Leaders in Care Awards 2021 winning the Business Initiative of the Year, with judges recognising our creative approach to supporting residents and staff and our commitment to quality care.
All that we have invested has been aimed at supporting our teams so that they are able to spend more time with residents than ever before – the single most important thing we can do to help us continue to deliver outstanding care.
Lucy Holl, Chief Executive
