Right at Home Cardiff & Newport is shortlisted for Excellence in Community Relations Award
Home care provider Right at Home Cardiff &
Newport is thrilled to announce it has been shortlisted for the Excellence in Community Relations Award for a third consecutive year at the South Wales Chamber of Commerce Welsh Business Awards.
The annual awards aim to recognise the very best achievements from businesses of all sizes across Wales who are playing a fundamental role in driving the Welsh economy forward. These awards will celebrate success, excellence in best practice and the contribution Welsh businesses are making to the wider community.
Right at Home Cardiff & Newport provides high quality care and support to people living in their own homes. It currently supports more than 225 Clients and employs a team of 170 trusted CareGivers. As well as services such as home help and personal care, the care provider supports Clients to get out and about in the community and pursue activities and hobbies, matching Clients to CareGivers with similar interests.
The team has been recognised for its commitment and dedication to the local community and going the extra mile to be inclusive and all-encompassing to their Clients and CareGivers alike. Examples of this commitment include a calendar of CareGiver and family events over the course of the year such as the annual Easter Party, Christmas Party for families and charity fundraising Summer events. The office also: produces and distributes regular and informative newsletters for Clients and CareGivers; shares Monthly Magic Moments to showcase the work done in the community and recognising CareGiver development and their achievements; and holds annual CareGiver awards to recognise outstanding practice.
This year the office also distributed Christmas lunches, gift bags and treats to those Clients who do not have anyone and without the CareGivers and office support, would otherwise have a lonely time over the festive season.
These are just a few illustrations of how the team work together towards a common goal – making a difference every day and not just talking about the Right at Home ethos but truly walking the walk with shared values in everything they do every day of the year.
Joe Guishard, Managing Director and Owner of Right at Home Cardiff & Newport said: “We are absolutely committed to making a real difference to the lives of vulnerable adults and the elderly living in our local communities. These awards give us the opportunity to shine a spotlight on our fantastic team of CareGivers and celebrate their hard work and dedication to providing the highest quality care and support to our Clients.”
Winners will be announced at a Black Tie Gala Dinner hosted by TV presenter Gethin Jones on Thursday 21st February 2019 in the prestigious setting of City Hall in Cardiff.
