Hrh prince william thanks madeira lodge care home

Cathy Worman, Care Worker at the New Romney based Madeira Lodge Care  Home received direct praise from the Duke of Cambridge, during a video  call facilitated by The Care Workers’ Charity to help him speak directly  to frontline social care workers.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have spoken to care workers from  across the UK to hear about their experiences of providing care during  the coronavirus outbreak, and to thank them for their tireless efforts  to continue to look after the most vulnerable in our society.

The Duke heard about the measures that they have taken to ensure  that they can continue to deliver care throughout the coronavirus  outbreak, including by self-isolating from their own families. The  participants discussed the impact that these measures have had on their  own mental wellbeing, and the crucial need to support social care  workers on the frontline of the coronavirus. His Royal Highness also  heard about the work that is being carried out by The Care Workers  Charity to help those across the social care sector.

During this call, The Duke said:  “If there’s hopefully some positivity that comes out of this  horrendous time, it is that there’s a light shone on all of the  wonderful things you all do and on the social care sector, and it allows  people to acknowledge, respect and appreciate everything that you are  doing.”

Adam Hutchison, managing director at Belmont Healthcare Group, and  Madeira Lodge Care Home says: “Words cannot express what it meant to the  whole of our care team to be recognised for our work with genuine  interest and respect. We are very grateful to Duke of Cambridge and I  know it really made Cathy’s day, month, year, to speak to the Duke face  to face”

There are almost 2 million care workers in the UK, contributing to  one of the largest workforces. They spend their careers assisting  others, but when circumstances change, sometimes it is the care workers  who need help.
