Tina Ward-Smith, who manages the Care UK branch, said: “The boxes were beautiful and it was wonderful to see people’s faces as they received their hampers. Some got very emotional and they were so touched and the phone hasn’t stopped ringing with people saying how delighted they are with the gift. Intel has been very generous and made a lot of people’s Easters very special.”
Care UK’s services in Swindon enable people to continue living independently and can also provide a sense of companionship. The team supports people with many different requirements including older people needing daily support, adults with physical disabilities and parents with disabled children.
Tina said: “We’re committed to helping our service users to stay in their own home for as long as they wish to, so if there is a specialist need that a support worker needs to meet, I’ll arrange the necessary training. To be able to say ‘yes, we can do that’ is a wonderful feeling. It gives me a great sense of satisfaction to be able to provide a level of service that enables a person to maintain independence.”
