Radfield Home Care staff deliver afternoon teas to clients in Stamford and Rutland to mark NHS, Social Care and Frontline Workers’ Day
Carers with a taste for baking created individual afternoon teas for those they support.
The gesture to mark NHS, Social Care and Frontline Workers’ Day on Monday was made by Radfield Home Care staff, who help people to live independently in their homes in the Stamford and Rutland areas.
During lockdown the carers had baked to keep up their clients’ spirits, and this week went one step further by creating and delivering afternoon tea boxes.
Care professional Gaynor Hemingway-Gibbs said: “The past year has been difficult for many clients and, for some, our visits have been the only outside contact they have had.
“Baking has been one of the things that we have done to add a little cheer to their lives, so it was an obvious way for us to celebrate the NHS, Social Care and Frontline Workers’ Day with them.
“Our family team has been great, providing some amazing contributions, from chocolate brownies and shortbread biscuits to sausage rolls and savoury scones. My speciality was apple and sultana cake; I really hope that they enjoyed it!
Chris Audsley, registered care manager, added: “We wanted to use this special occasion to show our gratitude to the fabulous family of carers we have. They have consistently pulled out the stops to go the extra mile for our clients throughout the pandemic.
“It’s been lovely to get our team together for the first time in over a year, but it wouldn’t have been the same without sharing the moment with our clients. The afternoon tea boxes went down incredibly well.”
