Christmas Homecare at Gardiner’s

Christmas Homecare – Over the past few weeks our team has been busy preparing for Christmas.

We have been in contact with all our clients to see if they need any extra Christmas Homecare over the festive period.  Or if they need to cancels any visits perhaps due to family visits.

Similarly, we have been speaking with our fantastic team of care workers.  We wanted to support all our team take time off at this special time.  Thanks must go to those wonderful people who are keen to provide extra extra help with Christmas Homecare .

Thank you and well done to the office team for all of your preparation.  Especially Jane, our Lead Care Coordinator, who has worked wonders with covering all of the duties.  Thank you all for making sure that all of our clients will be well looked after this Christmas.

It hasn’t all been work though….
