As part of our ongoing commitment to promoting good employee wellbeing and mental health within all of our homes, Employee Wellbeing Lead, Adele Burton, has organised some wellbeing workshops across our Springfield homes. These will take place quarterly and focus on different topics that are relevant to staff, residents families and visiting professionals, to provide everyone with the opportunity to chat are share their experiences.
To kick this initiative off at Chocolate Works Care Village on Thursday April 13th, we hosted our first wellbeing workshop which focused on menopause and female health. We had over 30 people visit for a coffee, cakes and a chat. It was amazing to hear how many lives can be changed with just a small chat of shared experience.
Our next wellbeing workshop will take place in July and focus on male health.
