#GladtoCare Awareness Week returns in July

June 24, 2021

Person Centred Software and Autumna are thrilled to announce that #GladtoCare Awareness Week is returning for a second year from 5th July to 9th July 2021.

Following the great success of the 2020 inaugural event, which saw over 250 care homes take part and the #GladtoCare hashtag used over 25,000 times in just one week, it is hoped that that this second-time celebration will become an annual awareness week.

Created in admiration of the care sector, #GladtoGlad Awareness Week serves as a celebration to resilient care workers, following what has undeniably been a trying period for the industry. It shows appreciation for the extraordinary contributions that carers make to their lives of recipients of care, their families, and the community members, reassuring families currently looking for care and in turn resulting in improving occupancy for providers.

Speaking of the Initiative, Jonathan Papworth, Co-founder of Person-Centred Software, said, ‘The response to the inaugural #GladtoCare Awareness Week was fantastic and saw hundreds of care providers across the UK get involved at the height of the pandemic. One year on, and with the 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.’

Care providers and care workers are encouraged to register their participation in the campaign by visiting www.gladtocare.com. Here, they will receive a free #GladtoCare digital toolkit, including decorative bunting, display posters, social media frames, and a bespoke activity calendar full of ideas for getting its residents involved including a virtual fitness session.
