Connors House Commemorates Social Care Day of Remembrance and Reflection
Staff and residents of Connors House Residential Care Home in Canterbury got together to pause and reflect on the challenges of the pandemic and remember those they sadly lost.
Since the start of the pandemic, the social care workforce has endured unprecedented and challenging times yet throughout this, they have continued to provide quality care and support for those they look after.
Social Care Day of Remembrance and Reflection, on 17th March, provided a chance to pause and reflect on the commitment and dedication of those working in adult social care. It was also a chance to remember those whom we have lost.
Those at Connors House used the opportunity to get together in the garden and plant some trees, in memory of the residents they lost to Covid-19 and a long serving carer who sadly passed away last year, after working at the home for over 30 years.
The sun shone as everyone gathered in the garden, where the two apple trees and a cherry tree were planted, followed by some time to reflect and remember together.
Christine Devlin, General Manager of Connors House said: “The past few years have been incredibly difficult for the whole of the social care sector and many loved ones have been lost. “As a team, we have supported one another through the pandemic, so we felt it was important for us to come together to reflect on this and to remember those who we lost and miss very much.”
