We celebrated Carers Week (7th -13th June) this week with a special thank you gift to our 500-plus staff who deliver compassionate care across its six nursing homes in Shropshire and Cheshire.
Inspired by the campaign to recognise the contribution carers make to their communities, we presented ‘thanks a latte’ insulated cups and chocolate treats to our own caring heroes.
Chief Executive Lucy Holl said: “The challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic in particular have highlighted the importance of caring professionals and their ability to rise to those challenges.
“We are so proud of the caring staff in our homes that make a difference each day to the lives of our residents through kindness and skills honed over many years.
“It takes special people to take on these roles and we wanted to show in national Carers Week how we appreciate and value the work they do.”
That appreciation has also been shown by the families of residents at the company’s Oldbury Grange home in Bridgnorth. It received 14 letters of appreciation when it asked relatives to write and say how the care team had made a difference.
The letters were put on display for carers to see how much they are valued when the home hosted an afternoon tea on Wednesday 9th June.
General Manager Lisa Bradley said: “It was lovely to read such kind comments from family members and to know that people are grateful for all we do to provide a safe and caring home for their loved ones."
