10th April, 2020 – The Good Care Group, the UK’s most awarded care company offering exceptional live-in-home care, announces a unique initiative; partnering with Rosemary Online to boost the physical and mental wellbeing of its carers who are working tirelessly through COVID-19 lockdown stipulations.
From today, and for the duration of twelve weeks, Rosemary Online will be offering The Good Care Group’s carers free access to the highly successful exercise videos and healthy eating recipes, as well as chat forums, coaching support and blogs. This will be hugely beneficial to both the professional live-in carers, and also to their clients whilst in isolation.
Live-in carers currently offer vital support to the overstretched NHS by helping the extremely vulnerable – often with complicated medical or anxiety-based needs – to stay at home during the pandemic.
Dominique Kent, MD of The Good Care Group explains: “The partnership with Rosemary Online came about because we wanted to do something to celebrate the amazing dedication of our wonderful carers, so many of whom are working for longer than usual at the sacrifice of seeing their own loved ones to ensure that our clients are safe. In addition, they are remaining inside in isolation with their clients to ensure they are not exposed to COVID-19.
“We recruit carers from overseas also, and with the travel restrictions currently in place many are not able to return home, so are instead choosing to isolate themselves in local hotels to minimise the risk to the clients. Our ethos at The Good Care Group is very much person-centred. It is not just about delivering high quality care, but also companionship whilst delivering the very best healthcare outcomes.
“Through maintaining the wellbeing of our staff, we’re helping them to be their best selves to support their clients through this intense and challenging time. As Rosemary Online has been helping people to feel good about themselves for many years, we feel that this is a really positive partnership.”
Sarah Skelton CEO of Rosemary Online, adds: “The Good Care Group’s live-in carers do a wonderful job, but right now they will be experiencing high levels of loneliness in isolation, as they put the needs of their clients before their own. I hope that with free access to the full range of Rosemary Online resources carers will be able to maintain good health and nutrition as well as reach out for a friendly online chat. The Good Care Group is committed to excellence in their field, and recognising the need for staff and client wellness is a brilliant example of this.”
This initiative is the first time that Rosemary Online (owned by Digital Wellbeing Limited) has worked with a care provider in this way.
Dominique Kent and Sarah Skelton are available for comment or interviews to discuss this initiative. The Good Care Group can also offer insights and thought leadership on broader challenges facing live-in carers and the profession.
