Growing old can bring challenges, both for the person who’s ageing and for their family. It can be frustrating for our loved ones because they can’t do everything they used to and feel like they’re losing their independence. At the same time, it might be worrying for their family as they might not be able to be there whenever their loved ones need them.

Huge congratulations to Bex Taylor who we’ve nominated as Home Instead Senior Care York & Ryedale’s CAREGiver of the Year for 2019. Bex has been part of the CAREGiver team for nearly 5 years now, getting by with the help of her trusty bicycle, a great mode of transport in the summer but a little more challenging in the winter… She actually does that many miles that she has to replace her bike every 18 months! During her time as a CAREGiver Bex has supported around 26 regular clients and has become invaluable to all those she sees. Well done Bex, congratulations from everyone for a well-deserved nomination.
What fantastic weather we had over the Easter weekend! Here at Home Instead Senior Care York & Ryedale, we always try and ask our wonderful CAREGivers to encourage their clients to get out of the house for a bit of fresh air. Over the long bank holiday weekend, we were sent across some great images from CAREGiver's, who'd done just that. Home Instead Client Elizabeth doesn't need much of an excuse to sit out in the garden to have her lunch in the sunshine, in fact, two CAREGiver's sent across pictures over the bank holiday weekend of her doing so! Elizabeth said she was really pleased as she has managed to have her lunch outside twice now this year thanks to the glorious weather, and that her garden is her favourite place. Another CAREGiver Julie, also sent us across an image of her clients, Diane & Edgar sat out in their beautiful garden, again making the most of the Easter sunshine, in what was truly a gorgeous weekend.
This week we had a group of new CAREGivers join us for our monthly introduction programme. The course which lastS for 3 days covers everything required to prepare our CAREGivers for supporting our elderly clients in their own homes. One highlight of the course is using our sensitivity kit, designed to give CAREGivers an indication of what it might be like to live with some of the conditions our clients have to deal with on a daily basis. As well as being incredibly informative, it also makes for a funny photo opportunity which, obviously, we can't refuse! Interested in joining us for our next CAREGiver Introduction programme? Give us a call on 01904 690884 to find out more information.
The weather in York this week has been glorious, spring has certainly sprung. Here at Home Instead Senior Care York & Ryedale, we encourage our CAREGivers to offer to take clients out or even for just a quick stroll around the block to make the most of the sunshine. CAREGiver Barbara sent us this lovely photo of her client Elisabeth enjoying a spot of lunch in her garden earlier on this week.
One of Home Instead Senior Care York & Ryedale's clients, George, celebrated his 90th birthday over the weekend. Home Instead York's CAREGiver Alison was invited to go along to the birthday celebrations thrown by George's family. While at the party, CAREGiver Alison took these lovely photos of George enjoying his special day. Happy Birthday George, we hope you had a fantastic one!
