We celebrated 10 years of caring last Friday. We have achieved a lot in 10 Years now for the next 10!
We celebrated 10 years of caring last Friday. It is really amazing how time has flown by. Since signing up our first home help client in January 201, with myself and my Care Manager alternating the visits, we have grown to the size we are today – in the last year we have provided almost 70,000 hours of care to our clients in Epping Forest! What a wonderful achievement.
I am so proud of the team I have built, with several team members being with me from the start. Jean is currently our longest serving employee having just received her 10-year award, but there are other team members who will also complete ten years’ service this year – we must be doing something right! Many of the office team started as Care Professionals and so know what we do from their own experience out in the field, and I do believe they can therefore understand better the needs of our clients and Care Professionals.
We celebrated with an afternoon reception for staff, clients, and their families plus people from the community.
Dame Eleanor Laing MP had cut the ribbon 10 years earlier to celebrate the opening of the business and so it was very fitting that she was able to cut the cake at the 10-year anniversary.
Milestones achieved in the last 10 years:
Some of our clients and client family members and friends attended and took the opportunity to chat to the office team members and Care Professionals. We were very pleased Mark, a family friend of one of our clients, Vera attended, Vera is the client who has been using our services the longest – 9 years.
We had several information hubs set up:
We had several We now run two monthly events at Theydon Bois Village Hall: A Memory Lane Café afternoon and a Singing for the Brain morning and soon to be added is our third monthly event – DanceSing afternoon which has been discussed above.
I am so proud of what we have achieved in the last ten years and look forward to the next ten years!
