Wright Care at Home – July Newsletter
The NHS celebrates 70 Years….
Wow can you believe our NHS is now 70 years old. What an absolute treasure. I often think we forget just how much we take the NHS for granted. From the nurses, to Doctors, to dentists, Occupational therapists, speech therapists, consultants, surgeons, Health Care workers and so many more… We are so lucky to have this service. One many don’t have. All of us at Wright Care at Home wish them a very Happy Birthday and thank them for everything they do. We work alongside them on a daily basis to ensure we always look to achieving positive outcomes and care for our customers.
Happy Birthday NHS!
We held our first team meeting in our new office in The Grey House…
Yes, it’s true, we have moved again. We will get to the bottom floor we promise.
We have following the company team growing moved to the second floor to a beautiful office overlooking the rooftops of Stamford. Office 6.
This week we held our first team meeting. A sea of ladies in Purple.
Over the last few weeks whilst Sammy and Margie have been absent the team have all come together to ensure we are one big family.
Here’s the majority of our beautiful caring care workers.
To thank them all for their continued hard work we gave out a small token of flowers. It’s the small things that matter.

How to stay safe in the hot weather…
Tips for coping with the heatwave…
- Shut windows and pull down the shades when it is hotter outside. You can open the windows for ventilation when it is cooler.
- Avoid the heat: stay out of the sun and don’t go out between 11am and 3pm (the hottest part of the day) if you’re vulnerable to the effects of heat.
- Keep rooms cool by using shades or reflective material outside the windows. If this isn’t possible, use light-colored curtains and keep them closed (metallic blinds and dark curtains can make the room hotter).
- Have cool baths or showers, and splash yourself with cool water.
- Drink cold drinks regularly, such as water and diluted fruit juice. Avoid excess alcohol, caffeine (tea, coffee and cola) or drinks high in sugar.
- Listen to alerts on the radio, TV and social media about keeping cool.
- Plan to make sure you have enough supplies, such as food, water and any medications you need.
- Identify the coolest room in the house so you know where to go to keep cool.
- Wear loose, cool clothing, and a hat and sunglasses if you go outdoors.
- Check up on friends, relatives and neighbours who may be less able to look after themselves.

In loving memory…
To honour some of ‘Simon Wright’s’ times at Wright Care at Home we wanted to share some of the fond treasured memories.
A gentle, kind man who will forever be in our hearts here. His ethos will continue, and we will continue as a family to ensure his legacy continues. He was a Director behind the scenes however he was the Director that made it all happen.
A family man of which we based our company on.
From the Care Manager…
I couldn’t really send this newsletter without mentioning that we sadly lost our biggest Director of Wright Care at Home in June. Simon was not just the Director but he was the heart of our organisation. Without his ethos ‘Wright Care at Home’ would not be here. He was a family man all the way through and believed in anything, with a real zest for life. An amazing Father and also Husband to Margie our second Director. We will continue to maintain his ethos and do him proud. He left a huge hole in our hearts and we want to maintain his legacy. We would like to thank everyone for there kind words and support over the last month. Also, we can’t thank the team enough for continuing to work so hard and make us proud in our absence. That’s what care really is about.
