The residents and team at Brook House Care Home have been celebrating Good Care Month with residents writing messages in cards to recognise everything that they do. The residents joined the Wellbeing Co-ordinators, Melissa and Diana and wrote cards with messages of thanks to their favourite carers, thanking them for the special ways in which they care for them and how they go the extra mile to enhance the residents lives.
These cards were then presented to the carers by the residents who were overjoyed to receive them, it meant so much to them to know how much they were appreciated for everything that they do.
Alison Southwell, Deputy Manager at Brook House said “Getting to know our residents is a privilege and we all try our hardest to meet the needs of everyone living here with us and to go the extra mile to bring happiness and continuity to their day. To know that this is appreciated means the world to us all as it is the residents that make Brook House the special home that it is.”
Resident Bill Bryden said “I couldn’t do without my carers. Carers are one of the most important parts of our society. If I get into a pickle there is always someone close by to help me – what more could you ask for?”
Good Care Month is celebrated in July and is a regular awareness campaign to bring caring out into the open – recognising the contribution carers make to families and communities throughout the UK.
