On Wednesday 30 June our residents at Woodstock Residential Care Home made a wonderful ‘thank you’ banner for our staff which was beautifully decorated with sparkles and written messages, personally thanking all the staff for the brilliant work they do.
National Frontline Workers Day
On Monday 5 July we joined in to mark National Frontline Workers Day and celebrate all our staff.
It was a day to celebrate all of our staff, acknowledge, appreciate and recognise them – to thank everyone for the amazing work they have been doing throughout the pandemic despite their own personal challenges.
We hosted a buffet afternoon and our team enjoyed a glass of bubbly with cakes, sandwiches and party food made by our wonderful Cooks.
We had a lovely afternoon reading thank you messages sent in from the families of our residents, showing their appreciation.
Here are some highlights;
“Thank you so much for all the care you’ve given to my dad since he came to you in January 2020. Whenever mum or I have been to visit everyone has been so lovely and welcoming, so happy and upbeat.” Johanna
“Thank you all so much for everything you have done and are doing for Jonty. You have made his transition into full time care as smooth and stress free as it could possibly be. He is so happy at Woodstock with you all.” Sheila
“We would like to say a massive thank you for all you do; everyone does an amazing job. Rose has now settled in nicely and that is all thanks to you, so we want to say thank you for being there and always caring.” Cheryl and Mark
“A heartfelt thank you to all the wonderful caring people at Woodstock who go the extra mile to ensure that mum is happy, healthy and well looked after. Bless you all.” Corinne
“My mum came to you in August last year and we can clearly see how well she is being cared for. We get regular updates and photos which are always appreciated when shared to family and friends. Every time we speak or see mum she’s happy, smiling and still loves a bit of banter!” Donna
“We’d like to say a huge thank you for looking after mum. I never ever thought I’d see the day mum would like any care home or agree to stay! A special thanks to Leah, Nicola and Marina for all your support and kindness. A massive amount of thanks for all of you for your fantastic care of mum.” Sarah
“Thank you so much for looking after my mum and for keeping her safe. It gives me such peace of mind to know that because of you she is happy and well.” Marcelline
“A big thank you to everyone in what must be a challenging time for the sector. Dad is so happy and settled with you. We really appreciate the measures you have to do day in day out to keep everyone safe. We are kept up to date with what’s going on and if there’s anything dad needs. We really like the use of interactiveMe and the lovely photos that come up. We appreciate your efforts in trying to persuade him to engage in activities.” Lisa and Claire
