This month we’re highlighting the work of Bernie and Freya at Riversway Nursing Home as we pick our Caring Heroes.
Bernie has proven over many years of experience how to be both efficient in completing tasks while simultaneously showing empathy, initiative and always finding time for the residents.
Through her friendly personality and self confidence she radiates a sense of calm, trust and safety. Bernie is a talented carer who delivers care at consistently high standards.
Freya, meanwhile, is a young carer who has given her all every step of the way.
We believe that it’s important for the people we care for to see who we are, what our passions and hobbies are, listen to our jokes and know about our families or studies.
For Freya, her passion is music and her skills are singing and playing the piano.
She has shown how caring for someone doesn’t always mean doing something for them, but doing it together. This might be through activities, setting a table together, assistance getting dressed, or something as simple as reading the newspaper together or making silly faces and laughing.
Thanks to both Bernie and Freya for their professionalism, spontaneity, enthusiasm, passion and hard work.
