everyLIFE called Rebecca McLennan to share the excitement of PASS users, Eidyn Care, who now deserve huge congratulations! They found themselves coming home from the Scottish Care Awards with two coveted prizes – Palliative and End-of-Life Care Practise and Care Provider of the Year.
Scottish Care hosts the National Care at Home and Housing Support Conference, Exhibition & Awards on 17 May 2019. Once again, this will take place at the Marriott Hotel in Glasgow.
This year’s conference is titled Redressing the balance: the potential of homecare
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.
In the wake of our excitement in having discovered Dentures, Guns & Money: The Diary of a Home Care Worker, by Rita Nemo, with Julian Hutchings, we decided that we wanted to know more. While the book gave us an insight into Rita’s life and the struggles care workers face, it also brought up so many burning questions that we feel only someone like Rita could answer.
