How Home Instead Romford Changed My Life

My journey began as a CAREGiver earlier in July this year (2020) when my previous role in another company had come to an end due to the outbreak of coronavirus.

A BIG Thank You to The Warren School

COVID-19 has meant that the correct use of personal protective equipment (PPE) has been more crucial than ever. PPE serves to protect both our clients and CAREGivers. We were recently contacted by Pete Williamson, Head of DT at The Warren School who kindly offered to donate face shields that the school has been busy making in Design Technology. They have produced over 650 face shields which really is a testament to the hard work they have put in!! We were extremely pleased with the quality and wanted to share our gratitude and thanks to the school for their generous offer. At difficult times like this, we are amazed to see how the community pull together and provide their offerings to help in any way they can. We have been working hard to ensure that all our CAREGivers are supported and provided with all the correct PPE required. We've ensured strict measures have been put in place aligned to the Government guidelines and are very fortunate that in these pressing times we have retained sufficient PPE throughout this pandemic. Ensuring the health and safety of our clients and CAREGivers remain our number one priority.
