CAREGiver Summer Social

This year we held our first ever CAREGiver Summer Social in which we invited CAREGivers and their families to join us for an afternoon of fun. After initially planning a BBQ and having to cancel plans due to our unpredictable British weather, we opted for a dryer solution - afternoon tea at the office. For one day only, the office training room was transformed into a banquet fit for a King! CAREGivers were welcomed into the office through the Home Instead Marquee set up with drinks. Then commenced the afternoon of delicious food prepared by Sandra and Rachael Birchall, and quizzes and games hosted by Suman. Once games were completed, prizes were awarded to winners, after a sniff off between Sarah Baker and Sarah Nichol competing against one another in our now famous Home Instead Reminiscent memory smell competition. Caroline then proceeded to award CAREGivers with their hard earned certificates over the year including awards for completion of the CARE Certificate, CPR Training and End of Life Training. Our CAREGiver of the Quarter was also announced, with Sarah Nichol winning herself a £100 worth of gift vouchers for her outstanding work this Quarter. What a great afternoon spent with our fantastic CAREGivers and getting to know their families.
