Please see a link to the latest edition of our newsletter below, inside you'll find 'a word from our CEO', lots of updates and information for both our staff and service users, details of recent draw winners, as well as much more. Thanks to everyone who has sent in compliments and submitted reviews through Homecare.co.uk, we really appreciate all feedback received to assist us in improving our services even further in the future. Well done and thank you to all our staff for their hard work and commitment too:
Within our TLC services, we have been working hard with the four South Yorkshire councils on a new pilot scheme called 'Be Well@Work'. This is a joint initiative by the local Rotherham, Barnsley, Doncaster & Sheffield councils, to support health and wellbeing in the workplace throughout the region and we are proud to announce we have now achieved this award.
The award requires a company to go through quite a stringent process, which includes a health & safety inspection by one of the local authority assessors, evidence of all health & wellbeing related policies and procedures to be checked and meetings to be held with several staff to confirm we do what we say we do to support them. Information relating to all sorts of topics, including healthy eating, exercise, help to stop smoking, alcohol awareness, mental health, specific medical conditions and more, can be found on boards and tables throughout all of our offices across the organisation. If you ever visit any of our offices, why not take a look?
The wellbeing of our employees is really important to us and this award follows on from the National Wellbeing Charter Award which we have achieved over recent years across the Optimo Care Group.
The Optimo Care Group took part in Christmas Jumper Day again this year, we raised a total of £86 in aid of 'Save the Children' and had much fun along the way. Why not check out our Facebook pages to see our pics?
May we take this opportunity to send everyone our very best wishes for Christmas and the new year ahead.
As in recent years we have once again allocated the money we would normally spend on company Christmas cards to buy presents for our service users. We ask our staff to nominate service users who, they think, would benefit from a little extra Christmas cheer (and ask them to give us their suggestions for gifts that would be useful/enjoyed by respective service users) and then our little elves go Christmas shopping and deliver gifts by Christmas Eve.
Thanks to those who've nominated service users to receive gifts and to everyone who is involved with this project.
We hope our service users enjoy receiving their prezzies. Please feel welcome to check out our facebook pages and the first newsletter of 2019 to see our pics...
