Just 10 years ago, Halloween wasn’t a particularly big holiday in the UK. In more recent times and following the lead of our friends across the pond, Halloween has become a hugely popular date and as such has become more commercialised with shops cashing in as early as August for the celebration. For most, Halloween is a fun holiday where children get dressed up to go trick or treating and enjoy themselves.
Here at There4U, we are immensely proud of our team. Everyone has different reasons for working for us. Some love the flexibility of working around school hours, some thrive off our industry leading incentives whereas others couldn’t ever see themselves doing anything else. People choose to become carers for various reasons, but the one thing that links them is that they are all compassionate, patient and truly want to make a difference to someone’s life.
Today, 7th September marks National Grateful Patient Day, it provides people with an opportunity to show appreciation for the hard-working professionals in the medical industry as well as the families/caregivers of anyone receiving medical or domiciliary care. Almost more importantly, honours the indomitable spirit of these courageous patients who are grateful to be alive.
“All you do is go to people’s houses and drink tea”
“How can you wipe people’s bottoms for a living?”
“I couldn’t do you what you do…..”
These are just a few comments I get from people when I tell them what I do for a living.
I work for There4U – a domiciliary care company based in Salisbury.
This week we had our Christmas team outing to The Escape Rooms in Salisbury.
Needless to say the teams took it all very seriously and and a good time was had by all, although we think we will stick to caring as our detecting skills left a lot to be desired!!!!
Merry Christmas everyone!
We are safely moved in !
Our new address is Cross Keys House
22 Queen Street
We have welcomed four new members of staff to our team this month.
They all come with much valued experience and skills and it is a privilege to have them join us.
We are looking forward to working with them and hope they enjoy being a part of our friendly team.
We are very excited that Sam Tyrell, one of our senior carers is taking on responsibility for training our staff.
We take the training of our staff very seriously and understand the importance of high quality and relevant training for all of our staff.
Sam will be responsible for the induction of new staff and ensuring that all mandatory training is up to date as well as developing and delivering interesting topics that will help us to continue the excellent care we provide.
We are very grateful to Blue Bee solutions and ANX Agency for the development of our new website.
We hope you will agree that it is really much more user friendly and the design is much clearer.
We would love to hear your thoughts.
This month sees our lovely carer Pauline entering semi-retirement, no we can’t believe it either!!
Pauline is a very valued member of our team and we are so glad that we are not losing her completely as she is continuing to work four days a week for us.
Enjoy the rest Pauline!!
