Person Centred Software and Autumna have announced the return of #GladtoCare Awareness Week following its successful launch last year.
Running from Monday 5 July to Friday 9 July 2021, #GladtoCare Awareness Week 2021 will invite participants to join in with a variety of fun and innovative activities designed to get the entire care community and its residents involved.
Following the 2020 inaugural event, which saw over 250 care homes take part and the #GladtoCare hashtag used over 25,000 times in just one week, it is hoped that this second-time celebration will become an annual awareness week.
Jonathan Papworth, co-founder of Person Centred Software, said: “The response to the inaugural #GladtoCare Awareness Week was fantastic and saw hundreds of care providers across the UK get involved at the height of the pandemic. One year on, and with the COVID-19 still very much impacting the sector, we were keen for the event to return.
“We hope that as many care providers and care workers will get involved as possible to shine a light on all of the incredible work that’s been done, and continues to be done, within the industry, much of which often goes unnoticed and underappreciated.”
Various initiatives during the week will encourage carers to highlight reasons why they are ‘#GladtoCare’. Through the sharing of stories, photos and videos on their social channels, participants will be asked to showcase milestone moments that have made them feel particularly proud to be caregivers, providing inspiration for people to consider careers within the industry.
Care providers and care workers are encouraged to register their participation in the campaign by visiting www.gladtocare.com. Here, they will receive a free #GladtoCare digital toolkit, including decorative bunting, display posters, social media frames and a bespoke activity calendar full of ideas for getting its residents involved including a virtual fitness session.
