This December, we want to bring everyone working in the care profession, residents and families an extra bit of festive cheer in our #WeCareAdvent calendar.
This year has been difficult. And we know that the negative news about care homes in the media has been so hard to see for our amazing care professionals, who have been going above and beyond during Covid to keep everyone safe, healthy and upbeat.
We also know how worrying the news coverage has been for our residents and families, who in addition to dealing with the stress of the pandemic, have been worrying about their loved ones’ health and wellbeing.
So, for the countdown to Christmas, we decided to highlight some of the joyful, creative and uplifting moments from our staff, family and residents at Westward Care in #WeCareAdvent. These moments happen every day, but it feels even more important to share them as we get ready for Christmas.
Every day until Christmas Day on Twitter, Facebook and on this page, we’ll be sharing special moments from Southlands, Headingley Hall and Pennington Court to show everyone how our residents, apartment owners and staff have been getting ready for the festive season.
We hope these moments of joy from us at Westward Care brings you and your loved ones some extra festive cheer during this unusual festive season. And we wish you all a happy and safe Christmas and New Year.
"The staff at Westward Care clearly love their jobs and the residents. It is evident that they go above and beyond for the people in their care."
