A good enough story on its own, and worthy of a mention on our website. However, the stories behind the headlines are often more interesting, and its one of these we want to share with you.
One of our Senior Care Workers in Trafford, is a lovely lady named Bev Perkins. Bev is a bubbly and happy person who brings a little of that happiness everywhere she goes. Bev was mentioned in the CQC report, not just because of her excellent care work, but because she does something a little different. Bev Perkins is known as the ‘Singing Carer’. Bev sings with many of our clients, whilst she goes about her job – a little bit of Elvis here, a little bit of Motown there. We have some clients who like to sing hymns with Bev as an expression of their faith, and she will join in with those that she knows, and will also join people in saying their prayers where this gives them comfort. It’s this kind of consideration which makes care more than a job and makes people feel happy and at ease when they need care.
