Caring in Covid project features inspiring stories from C&C
Three C&C employees have had their stories about adapting to the Covid-19 pandemic feature in the National Care Forum's (NCF) 'Caring in Covid' project, a new e-book featuring a collection of over 100 tales about care providers' experiences over the past year.
Rachel Musrati, care home manager at Compton Lodge, Joba Begum, team leader at Cecil Court, and Jessica Corlett, arts and fitness co-ordinator across our four care homes, each had their contributions published in the compendium, which is now live on the NCF website.
Julia Ashley, Chief Executive of C&C, said:
"The NCF's Caring in Covid e-book shines a light on some truly extraordinary tales as to how care homes across the country have coped in the pandemic, despite many difficult and uncertain times. Our own care staff have worked tirelessly not only to adapt to new restrictions, but also to continue bringing joy to our residents. We are thrilled to have been able to make such a significant contribution through three C&C employees sharing their experiences for the project."
Vic Rayner, Executive Director of the NCF, which is the leading membership association for not-for-profit social care providers, said:
"Through the collection of Caring Heroes stories, the reader peaks behind the closed doors and experiences what it was really like for care staff, residents in care homes, and people needing support in their own homes during lockdown. This book is more than just a nod to social history, it demonstrates how people's lives are enriched by the role of those working in the care sector through their creativity, dedication and passion, and through their many skills and talents."
