Celebrating Homecare September 22nd
EveryDayCare & Support is honouring its careworkers and recognising their amazing work on 22nd September, by taking part in the first ever ‘Celebrating Homecare’ day, organised by United Kingdom Homecare Association (UKHCA) and the are Care Workers Charity (CWC).
Celebrating Homecare has been launched to celebrate and recognise the amazing work that homecarers provide. Every day of the year, homecare workers support people to live safely and well at home, enabling people to flourish within our communities.
Made With Care
The theme for this year’s inaugural event is ‘made with care’, to celebrate the fantastic relationships that exist between the people who give and receive care, and highlight the many activities they enjoy together. Whether this is crafting, baking, completing a jigsaw or even filming a TikTok, careworkers and the people they support are being encouraged to celebrate something they have made or shared together.
EveryDay Care & Support employs 234 careworkers who support our clients in their own homes, providing enabling, domestic support around the home, personal care, specialist dementia and palliative care. Throughout a very difficult period, they have served an important role as key workers, providing vital support to clients living across North Tyneside and Newcastle.
Head of Professional Care Services
Head of Professional Care Services Kerry Parker commented “the work that homecarers do often goes unrecognised however at EveryDay we’re very different and celebrate our team’s achievements on an ongoing basis. They provide more than a service to families, customers and their carers- they are truly part of those families”
UK Homecare Association
Jane Townson, CEO of UKHCA commented: “Homecare workers have been a lifeline for many people throughout the past 18 months, showing real selflessness and resilience in providing invaluable support to people in their own homes in incredibly challenging times.
“But the work they do is always important – not just throughout the pandemic. Homecare services benefit all of us: people who receive and give services, their families, health services and our wider communities. “Their roles deserve to be celebrated now, and increasingly into the future.”
Care Workers Charity
Speaking about the celebration, Karolina Gerlich, CEO of the CWC said: “It’s right and proper every so often to take a step back from the day to day and look at what you have achieved.
“Careworkers do such amazing work, bringing companionship, care and comfort to so many people.
“It’s wonderful to have the opportunity to celebrate what they do!”
