Homecare Day 2020

Wednesday 9th December is Homecare Day. Ran by the United Kingdom Homecare Association (UKHCA) and Scottish Care, Homecare Day encourages people to share success stories about what the sector has done for the elderly and vulnerable.

Domiciliary care makes a difference to so many lives and communities across the country, and we like to take every opportunity to celebrate that. It’s a chance to highlight the fantastic work of our own CAREGivers, and carers from all organisations, who help people stay safe and happy at home.

Each of our clients has their own story about what homecare has done for them. Take Dennis from Torquay who had a head injury a few years ago, which stopped him from swimming and running: two activities he loved. Thanks to the help of his CAREGivers, Dennis has been able to slowly get back to his active lifestyle and get his fitness and mental wellbeing back on track.

Everyone’s experience of domiciliary care is different, and we want you to share yours this Homecare Day. Whether you’re a client, a relative of a client, or a CAREGiver, tell us your story on social media using the hashtag #homecareday.
