Carebase’s Carers week took place recently from 9 – 15 June to coincide with National Carers’ Week and was the perfect opportunity for Carebase to say a huge thank you to the dedicated staff and amazing teams that offer such wonderful care and compassion to the residents in its homes and for the difference they make to the residents’ lives each and every day.
Carers Week recognises and celebrates the hard work the staff carries out and is Carebase’s way of saying a heartfelt ‘thank you’ for the personal responsibility the teams take in delivering excellent care every day. At Carebase all team members are considered carers, from domestic staff to gardeners, as they all play an integral part in the wellbeing of the residents in their care. This is the fourth year Carebase has celebrated its carers in this way.
The week was fun-packed and full of many wonderful treats for the teams, including an ice cream van that visited each home, chocolate towers, a retro sweets hamper, chocolate fountains, doughnuts, cookies, candy floss and pizza deliveries. The residents also benefitted from the generosity and shared some of the treats, especially the ice creams, which were perfect in the warm weather.
Carebase wanted to ensure that every team member enjoyed a week of luxury treats, with each home receiving a different treat every day.
Nicola Coveney, Managing Director, Carebase, says: “Carebase is an amazing group of care homes because of the truly wonderful, giving people who work here. The incredible dedication, care and compassion shown by our every member of staff means we really do make a difference and the residents live life to the full each and every day. We are delighted to be able to thank them all by giving them a week of pampering to recognise all their hard work.”
