Alex O’Neill – Operations Director at Fairway Homecare Ltd commented “It was fantastic to be involved with Victoria who was a pleasure to work with throughout the process. The Fairway team that were out and about with Victoria not only enjoyed the show but the fantastic impact it had on clients and residents alike. It was heart-warming to see residents engage, enjoy and join in. We will definitely look to do more projects in the future.” Continue reading

#CarersWeek2017

Carers Week is an annual campaign to raise awareness of caring, highlight the challenges carers face and recognise imageedit_1_9888484947the contribution they make to families and communities throughout the UK.

The campaign is brought to life by thousands of individuals and organisations who come together to organise activities and events throughout the UK, drawing attention to just how important caring is.

This Carers Week we presented Farhia with a bouquet of flowers, shopping vouchers and the Employee of the Month award. Farhia is always keen to picks up shifts, will always offer cover on her days off and stays over at shifts to make sure that clients have suitable cover. She never has a problem with going the extra mile, always gets great feedback too and never complains. Farhia is an asset to the Fairway team.

We would like to thank all of our Fairway carers for their exceptional work and giving Fairway the excellent reputation that we hold.

It will then go on to give you a range of useful professional tips about setting up the right working relationship with your service users, and discuss some of the issues that can arise when dignity and privacy are not respected.
