The success of any business relies upon the hard work and dedication of its staff, whether they are working in a management role or just starting out. This is particularly true in domiciliary care, as we are faced with unique challenges and sensitive situations on a daily basis. Without excellent teamwork and our carers’ individual strengths, we wouldn’t be able to contend with the unpredictable nature of care work half as well.

No situation has highlighted this further than the ongoing pandemic, which has rocked the health sector to its core. Understandably, many organisations have floundered in the face of mounting responsibilities and restrictions. Though Adelfi has certainly faced these challenges, at every turn our carers have shown incredible levels of adaptability and loyalty to the service we provide. We already knew that each member of our team was a superstar carer, but now we can confidently say that together we can weather any storm.

We want to share our deep gratitude for our carers generally, but we take notice of individual acts too. Too often, companies forget to show recognition for the small gestures, fresh ideas, and tender moments that make everything run smoothly. Throughout the pandemic, we’ve seen so many carers save the day with these compassionate acts, supporting our clients as well as each other. For example, there have been plenty of occasions where someone has needed to isolate, leaving a gap in the rota. Our carers have repeatedly stepped in to cover their colleagues’ shifts, meaning that Adelfi could continue to provide the consistent home care that we pride ourselves on.

It’s not only the amazing personal qualities of our team that we want to sing the praises of. Our mission is to make it public knowledge that care assistants are highly skilled workers, with a wealth of specialist knowledge. For every type of service we provide, and even each individual we care for, our team must possess unique expertise and skills. This is true across the board, whether it’s the appropriate handling of physical tasks, or the specific emotional support required for clients with dementia. Anyone who considers care work to be unskilled should spend an afternoon with our team – they’d soon be eating their words!

As Adelfi continues to grow, we know that none of this would be possible without each member of our family. Over the past couple of years, many vulnerable people have had to spend long stretches of time in their homes. We can only hope that they have had access to the same level of amazing support that our carers provide, which has made such a clear difference to the lives of our clients throughout the pandemic. Though we can’t predict the future for public health, we are certain that Adelfi will continue to provide compassionate and consistent support, whatever comes next. We have our wonderful carers to thank for that.
