Wright Care At Home – July Newsletter
This July we have welcomed back our Care Director, Sammy. This is following her maternity leave, where she has been busy being a super mum to her beautiful twin girls. The last 9 months have really flown by and we have certainly all missed her. Our Care team have also been busy gaining numerous certificates and raising money for charity this month and we have more planned for September.
Despite it being the hottest day of the year on Thursday 25th July our Care Management team went that extra mile outside of their duties where they visited the care team to deliver water bottles, cold drinks and wet wipes to keep them all refreshed and hydrated! We appreciate our team so much for what they do in all weather conditions. They forever go the extra mile! Well done Sarah and Tina great example of kindness
