With the new tier announcements impacting many of us across the country, loneliness is more prevalent than ever. Especially for individuals without family members living nearby. The team at Care 1st Homecare were determined not to let those they care for be alone. And so, they brought the joys of Christmas to their homes.

Bristol-based home care company, Care 1st Homecare, arranged for a surprise trip from Santa, delivering gifts and festive cheer to the individuals they provide home care services for.

Above and Beyond the Care of Duty

Amongst those was Greg Sumner, aged 30, who was left paralysed from the waist down after a serious car accident. Greg lives in a purpose-built bungalow in the centre of Bristol. He receives 24/7 support from the Care 1st team.

Following the visit from Santa, Greg said: “Going above and beyond the call of duty to provide wonderful surprises like this is what makes Care 1st truly spectacular. Without them I simply wouldn’t have the same quality of life I do now. Restrictions have meant that Christmas plans aren’t quite what they should be. This has really put a smile on my face.”

Under normal circumstances, Care 1st home care in Bristol would have held a Christmas party for clients and carers, however COVID safety measures have meant this isn’t possible, so they had to change tac and find another way to celebrate.

Upon the announcement of the new restrictions, the Care 1st Homecare team came up with a plan to create some festive cheer. We enlisted the help of Santa Claus himself to make the campaign happen. After reciting some carols to practice, the team visited the various homes in Bristol.

Care Carries on, Despite New Tier

Kay Morley-Cooper said: “2020 has not been very fun for many of us. It’s brought out the worst and the best in people. Our job as carers, in times like these, is to ensure that we bring positive cheer to all who need it. A huge thank you to all carers, NHS staff and social care workers up and down the country.”
