What a crazy start to March 18! With all this snow around its hard to believe its now spring time! Our carers have been out and about battling the snow and loving every minute of it! Well done to all our lovely ladies who have been working exceptionally hard to reach all our service users! We have also seen huge amount of community spirit which was lovely! Thank you to all the volunteers that have assisted us with vehicles and transporting our carers!
On 26th February 2018, out new night team pilot officially launched! We would like to extend a big warm welcome to all the new staff that joined our night care team!
We all got into the Children in Need spirit here at Altogether Care in November 2017 by having a PJ day! Our service users loved seeing everyone take part!
In the last couple of months we have revamped our administration team and are pleased to announce Donna M (pictured further down this page) and Donna C as our new administration Team!
You can see Donna C pictured on the left with our Registered Provider Helen!
On 1st October 2017 we made the exciting move into our new offices! Don't worry though - we haven't gone far! In fact, we are just across the yard from our old office! Our office number remains the same (01432 344844) and is still answered 24 hours per day, 7 days per week!
You may have seen us pictured in the latest issue of St Michaels Hospice newsletter! This is a charity very close to our hearts here at Altogether Care so we wanted to do a little something to raise some money. Altogether Care donated winnings from a trip to Ladies’ Day at Royal Ascot, attended by the group’s owner and manager, Helen Gordon (pictured right), and Mary Knight (left), a Senior Community Support Worker.
They won £196 between them, and kindly rounded it up to £200.
This figure was boosted by £302 collected during a Big Tea at their headquarters in Plough Lane, Hereford.
Members of Altogether Care have also supported St Michael’s in the past, taking part in The Paint Runner.
Altogether Care would like to announce that we have a new administrator in the office! The lovely Donna will be taking your calls every Monday and Tuesday
In July 2017, 5 of our staff members became dementia friends. 2 of these staff members became dementia champions. We are hoping to make all of our staff dementia friends. If you are a family member or a friend and your loved one has dementia and you would like to attend a session or simply find out more about dementia then please contact us on 01432 344844.
July 2017 saw our first Altogether Care Baby Shower! We must have had something in the water here as two of our lovely ladies are expecting! We had a fantastic afternoon and wish these ladies the best of luck!
