Wright Care at Home – August Newsletter
August is always a busy month for us at Wright Care at Home with the school holidays, Burghley Horse trials and the extra challenges we face with annual leave and the extra traffic in Stamford.
It’s scary to think we are now preparing for our Winter contingency plans and for the festive period. Where does time go?
Soon our Deputy Care Manager ties the knot, Our Care Manager will be expecting the arrival of her twins, and we will have lots of exciting news to share……
Our pledge to The Dignity Council….
This month we held a meeting with all our team members across two sessions to talk about ‘Dignity’ and what it means as a Care Worker.
The National Dignity Council is a government initiative set up for those working in a health and Social care environment to make a pledge on how they will develop good practice and consistently find innovative ways of promoting this in the community.
We believe in offering person centred holistic care and this session was all about care workers reflecting on their practice and how to always promote independence in a home care setting.
Care Worker Successes…
This month has been a big month for awards, Racheal received her Care Certificate. This is a certificate that all Care Workers have to work towards when working in Health and Social care. Well done Racheal.
Kayleigh one of our newest carers to the team has completed her training induction. Any new carer goes through our induction process so we can ensure they deliver the best care practice.
With all the beautiful weather we have had; Stamford has been looking even more beautiful than ever.
It’s one of the many perks to our jobs. We get to witness the views on our travels.
This is a countryside view taken and sent in to the Office from one of our team members. It’s so stunning we had to share it.
Level 3 Success….
One of our Care workers has been working incredibly hard to complete her Level 3 Diploma in Health and Social Care. Toni always brings a breath of fresh air, a cheery smile to those she interacts with and we couldn’t be prouder of her achievement.
It takes anywhere between 12 and 18 months to gain this qualification and takes a lot of time outside our normal roles. Well done Toni!! Level 5 now maybe? We love sharing our carer successes.
Toni repeatedly goes above and beyond for our customers. Most recently assisting one of our customers to a wedding!
If you would like a one-off ad-hoc voluntary visit to maybe access the community, go for lunch, or just to chat with one of our team please return the voluntary request form to one of our carers. We would love to go that extra mile!
Please see enclosed our forms to request this.
From the Care Manager…
August was a busy month at the Wright Care at Home Hub. With new carers joining our team, Tina joining the office and Melanie now adding to our Administration team its been a month full of welcomes. We are all thankful for some light relief after the hot weather and hope all our customers are enjoying some cooler days. We had some spotty dotty days in the office this month, so we had to capture it above. It was a month for career progress with four of our care workers being promoted into an Ambassador role to help introduce our newer members of the team.
