Over the last few weeks, like so many around the country, I have joined in celebrating our key workers who have worked tirelessly trying to get us through this challenging and devastating COVID-19 pandemic.
More than four in five adult social care services are currently either rated Good or Outstanding by the CQC.
So she died then. My mother, that is. To be fair, she’s been saying that her children would be the death of her for the last 50 years so she was finally right. But it does mean that Morrisons caff will have one less customer, or one more seat available, depending on your outlook on life and death.
The Care England 2019 conference and exhibition will shine a spotlight on the social care workforce and the steps it’s taking to meet the challenges of effective care delivery in today’s economic climate. With ‘Workforce Matters’ as the theme, this prestigious event will take place at the Church House Conference Centre in London on Wednesday 13 November.
On the 4th of September NACAS UK will be hosting Professional Care Workers’ Day – celebrating those who aim to deliver fantastic care each and every day. The event will bring the industry together to applaud the carers who are there day in and day out, in the snow, scorching sun and pouring rain; at night, at Christmas, and on Sundays.
NACAS aspire to make care workers feel special for the awe-inspiring work that they do.
This national event will be held in London, along with a few regional events across the country. This years theme is focused on well-being. There will be free consultations with physiotherapists, psychologists, nutritionists, beauty and massage therapists, money and career advice, along with more ways to help care workers look after themselves and feel better.
Let’s all come together to celebrate care workers!
In all of the sectors I have worked in previously – retail, security, technology, distribution, insurance, automotive and, of course, the accounting profession – people are invested in, trained and valued; some more than others but all to an extent are cared about and cared for. The ‘personhood’ of individuals in the various corporate teams is a key responsibility for the leaders of those teams. If the individuals are right, the team is right and on most occasions the objectives will be met.
