WHO CARES WINS
Our care team beat the heat staying saturated and motivated with the endless supply of water and the banner of appreciation created by the kids. Making sure our team had the support and a constant supply of water to hand during this weekend of exceptional warm weather was front of mind.
Operations Manager John Young connects with each one of the front line team every morning, referring to them as “Team PC”, ensuring they are ready for the day ahead and have the necessary resources to stay safe. We have adopted a motto WHO CARES WINS…
In addition, “Team PC” would like to extend a BIG welcome to Joanna who has recently joined the team.
Premier Care Services have set up a secured Remote office at the Operation Manager’s home. This allows Staff to reduce their travel to the main office and doubles up as a central collection point for all their PPE supplies.
The Operations Manager John has put together blue emergency PPE packs as back up in the event that equipment runs low, due to the current shortage of hand gel we have purchased the ingredients needed to make our own supply on a weekly basis.
Christine (Registered Manager) and John her Son (Operations Manager) keep regular contact with the staff daily to try and boost moral and let them all know we are here for them and their Family members if any assistance is required.
We contacted all our clients at the start of this terrible Pandemic and reassured them that if there was anything they required outside of the current care package please feel free to contact us and if we can help we would at no extra cost.
We both would like to say that all our outstanding and professional staff are committed and go much further than above and beyond in playing their part in keeping all our clients and their families as safe as possible.
We will not give up on anybody
Christine and John
