Northern Trust homecare staff celebrated at special recognition event

Homecare staff have been celebrated at the Northern Health and Social Care Trust’s annual Domiciliary Care Recognition Event.

It provided an opportunity to recognise the outstanding work carried out by the Trust’s inspirational staff on a daily basis.

The ceremony recognised both individual Homecare workers and teams, and it reflected on their commitment to ongoing learning and development as well as their contribution to providing a caring and compassionate service.

Diane Spence, Director of Community Care said: “I had great pleasure in attending the Domiciliary Care Recognition Event alongside Executive Director of Social Work and Director of Children and Young People Maura Dargan.

“It is always an uplifting experience to see and hear about the impact of Homecare services delivered by our Trust staff. Day in and day out, regardless of the weather, staff always strive to help people live in the comfort of their own homes, close to their families, next to their neighbours and surrounded by their friends.

“At this same event last year, I was struck by the extent of innovative service delivery and compassionate care delivered by our staff. This year was no exception. It was wonderful to see so many of Homecare staff recognised for the vital role they play in our communities.

“We have an amazing Homecare service, and I, along with the entire Trust Board and Senior Management Team, am enormously proud of the people who are part of Homecare Team North. This was an important day for making sure each of our staff members are very aware of that, and to thank them for making the ordinary special.”
