Around 25 of our CAREGiver team attended our pre-Easter event held in the boardroom at our offices.
Tony welcomed everyone and introduced some new CAREGivers as well as Cindy Moore, who has recently joined us to look after Recruitment and Training.
With regard to training, Tony outlined his plans for making sure that everyone has the opportunity to take part in the brand new dementia training programme which has recently been launched by Home Instead Senior Care. This innovative programme will enable all CAREGivers to help their clients more effectively as well as making them feel more confident in supporting them. We are proud to report that the reaction to the news was extremely positive and the fact that once successfully completed each CAREGiver will have a City and Guilds accreditation to their name, will no doubt give everyone that extra incentive to pass...
We had three recipients of our new "Special Recognition Award," they were: Lisa Everett, Kathy Reid and Hayley Thompson. This will be awarded whenever any Caregiver shows exceptional professionalism or goes that little bit further than is normally expected when looking after their clients. The first three award winners were delighted to receive their certificates and chocolates at the meeting (see pictures)
At the end of the meeting Care Manager Laura Robery and Office Manager Sharon Woodlands distributed small Easter Gifts to all attendees. Those unable to be there through illness or client commitments were not left out, with Laura and Sharon making sure they all got their gifts in time for Easter.
