We’re celebrating World Health Day

We want to celebrate everyone who provides fantastic care in our industry this World Health Day.

Recognising that nurses, alongside other key workers, such as carers, housekeepers and catering employees keep the care sector cogs turning, we want to celebrate everyone in the care industry this World Health Day.

We have partnered with Care First, an organisation that supports the wellbeing of our employees. The organisation has provided us with daily Webinar links on topics such as ‘tips to look after your mental health from home’, ‘isolation and loneliness support’ and ‘tips to boost your immunity’, which are easily accessible to everyone at the charity, to listen to during working hours.

Alongside the webinars and also to support World Health Day, Karolina Nowadczyk, Team Leader and Mindfulness Coach from Brunelcare’s Deerhurst Care Home has recorded two guided meditation mindfulness sessions for all employees at Brunelcare, allowing everyone the chance to unwind, relax and reconnect after finishing their day, whether working from home to support the team or working across Brunelcare sites.

Karolina Nowadczyk, Team Leader and Mindfulness Coach said: “I wanted to do something special to celebrate World Health Day for the Nurses I work with at Brunelcare, alongside the rest of my colleagues who have been working so hard. It’s important to look after yourself while caring for someone else, and I’m hoping that my recorded guided meditation mindfulness session will allow all my colleagues to relax and unwind."

During this challenging time, nurses and key workers continue to dedicate their lives to keeping people safe, and we want to celebrate their continued hard work in helping us provide outstanding care and support.

Emma Cowling, Nurse at Brunelcare’s Deerhurst Care Home said: “I have met and worked with some incredible nurses throughout my career, and count it as a privilege to be part of a profession which makes caring for others it’s goal. I also feel that it’s vital not to forget the other support staff who make up our team at Brunelcare. The Care Assistants, Housekeepers, Laundry and Catering Staff.....over the years I have often observed how you carry out your roles with care and consideration, and believe you should be recognised as well! Happy World Health Day.”
