Lockdown was announced on the 23rd of March, which was only 6 weeks ago. It feels like a lifetime to some of us, and has brought about unprecedented changes. With the lockdown, we’ve had to adapt and make some changes to how we operate. We’ve also had to think about what we as a company can do in supporting our NHS and our Service Users – even more than we did before.
In this 6 weeks, we’ve managed to move our office team to work from home. Our team have risen to every challenge thrown at them. Changing their hours, stepping into different roles and tasks and being prepared to jump into action at a moments notice. This allows us to provide as much support as we can to our front line carers and our Service Users.
Supporting our NHS
During this period of lockdown, we’ve managed to set a company record in April – taking on a total of 80 new clients. This is nearly three new clients every day! We think this is a fantastic achievement, and we are proud to be providing care and support for anyone who needs it.
We have also supported over 100 people from hospital back to their own community, allowing them to be in their own homes throughout this time of crisis. It must feel daunting to be in hospital during this pandemic, and every individual we can support back safely at home relieves pressure on our remarkable NHS colleagues.
We just want to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to all of our front line care workers for making new clients feel welcome, and to the people who are arranging these packages in such different circumstances. You are AMAZING.
