#GladtoCare Week Celebrates the Care Sector

The Carer is delighted to support #GladtoCare Week 2022 – a national awareness week dedicated to celebrating those who work in the care sector, which has returned for its third year.

Following the great success of the inaugural #GladtoCare Awareness Week that saw over 500 care homes take part and the #GladtoCare hashtag used over three million times in just one week, The Carer will be getting involved in the event, which aims to celebrate the extraordinary contributions that carers make to the lives of recipients of care, their families, and community members.

Spearheaded by Person Centred Software and Autumna, two major players in the care industry, #GladtoCare Week will take place from Monday 20th to Friday 24th June 2022.

With the 2022 theme being ‘celebration’, participants will be invited to join in with a variety of fun and innovative activities throughout the week, designed to get the entire care community and its residents involved. This year’s activities include virtual fitness sessions, cooking competitions and a virtual open day.

Despite the worst of the pandemic being behind us, the organisers hope that the week will continue to highlight the outstanding dedication displayed by carers throughout the crisis, who have gone above and beyond to make sure care home residents are kept safe, happy and entertained. It aims to champion their incredible work whilst simultaneously allowing them to shout about why they’re glad to work in the care sector.

Speaking of the initiative, Jonathan Papworth, Founder of Person Centred Software, said: “The responses to the last two #GladtoCare Weeks were fantastic and saw hundreds of care providers across the UK get involved at the height of the pandemic. Two years on, and with the effects of COVID-19 still very much impacting the sector, we were keen for the event to return.”

“We hope that as many care providers and care workers will get involved as possible to shine a light on all of the incredible work that’s been done, and continues to be done, within the industry, much of which often goes unnoticed and underappreciated.” Jonathan concluded.
