During the last 72 hours the covid-19 pandemic has escalated here in the UK.

The fabulous NHS staff are doing an amazing job looking after those in hospitals. However, there are thousands of care workers up and down the UK working every hour available caring for those at home.

we are trained to administer medication, notice signs of UTI’s, strok, heart attack, dementia and many more illnesses.

we look after a wide range of people from the elderly and fail to people who are paralysed! We don’t just look after the elderly, we have customers as young as 18 and as old as 103!

During this pandemic we are still out there caring for the vulnerable while they are in isolation, we are putting ourselves at risk to care for them.

it us only fair that in light of this current situation that care workers are seen as a skilled and valued work force. At the end of Brexit thousands of care workers risk being deported as they are seen to be in an unskilled profession, these are now the same people who are caring for the elderly and keeping them safe through this turbulent time.
