The Good Care Group has partnered up with online fitness and wellbeing provider Rosemary Online to offer wellness support to live-in carers who are working through the COVID-19 lockdown.
For the next 12 weeks, Rosemary Online will be offering The Good Care Group’s carers free access to exercise videos and healthy eating recipes, as well as chat forums, coaching support and blogs.
Dominique Kent (pictured), managing director of The Good Care Group said: “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.
“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.”
This is the first time Rosemary Online, fronted by Rosemary Conley and owned by Digital Wellbeing, has worked with a care provider in this way.
Sarah Skelton, CEO of Rosemary Online, said: “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.”
