Thank you letter from our CEO to all Amicura staff for your support during the COVID-19 crisis

To all colleagues, service users and relatives,

Minster Care would like to reassure all residents at our homes, their families, our staff and visitors that we are continuing to strictly adhere to the NHS Guidelines regarding the COVID-19 outbreak.

During this unprecedented crisis, we acknowledge that it is an exceptionally challenging time for our care homes, particularly for the staff who are working around the clock to ensure residents continue to be provided the best care, with as little interruption as possible to their daily routines.

We also understand, with deep sympathy, that this has been a difficult time for relatives, who have been unable to visit family members at the homes in order to protect all residents. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all relatives for being understanding and for continuing to coordinate with staff members during this extremely challenging period.

The past weeks have seen our staff members – managers, carers, activities coordinators, domestic, kitchen and maintenance staff alike – rising to the occasion and approaching this challenging time with a positive, can-do attitude. This has been showcased in many ways, including staff coming up with innovative ways for relatives to stay in touch with their family members through social media and telephone calls, and in taking over shifts or assisting in multiple ways, sometimes beyond the scope of their own job role.

As this is an uncertain time, we would also like to extend the opportunity to those seeking either employment, additional hours, or who are simply looking to help our carers with the workload, to apply for carer positions with our Minster homes. The homes can be approached directly and Minster can offer a First Check DBS, to start people straight away without delay.

As the crisis continues, we want to express our heartfelt gratitude to all staff who are pulling their weight and who are continuing to make our care homes positive and happy places of residence, through all of this adversity. It has shown us that we are better united and that together, we can overcome this.

Yours Sincerely,

Mahesh Patel
CEO, Minster Care Group
