Belmont at Home is honouring its care workers and recognising their amazing work on the 22nd September by taking part in the first ever ‘Celebrating Homecare’ day, organised by United Kingdom Homecare Association (UKHCA) and the 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.
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.
Jennie Coy, Belmont at Home Manager says: “We’re so pleased to be recognised as a workforce during this national event. Homecare is a vital community service in enabling people to remain living independently in their own homes. We take great pleasure in providing that service and knowing that those we care for and support are happy, safe and confident in their own homes thanks to our help.”
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 thefuture.”
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!”
