It's a Family Affair
It's a family affair at Home Instead Senior Care. The daughters of the founders have been very busy throughout lockdown, delivering PPE to the company's CAREGivers across Ipswich, Woodbridge and Felixstowe.
"We both leapt at the opportunity to volunteer and help deliver PPE," said Zara, "although it was pretty strange driving around with so little traffic on the roads - it felt really quite eerie."
Although the company's office has remained open during the pandemic, to ensure it is able to maintain the responsiveness of its service, CAREGivers and other visitors have been asked to stay away. Delivering PPE, which is in far greater use to help protect clients and staff from COVID-19, seemed the most appropriate action to take and has been widely appreciated by the team.
"It's been lovely to meet many of the CAREGivers as well," added Tessa, "and say thank you to them. They've been really friendly and very grateful for what we're doing. It's also been nice to get out and about too!"
