Our staff always go the extra mile for our residents, so Woodley Grange Manager, Liliana Macieira, organised some well-deserved pampering sessions to recognise their hard work and commitment.
Liliana said: “With the pandemic and the uncertainty we are now facing, staff recruitment and retention has been a real challenge. This has put a lot of pressure on the staff that stayed strong and continue working in care.”
Massage student, Solange Jesus, was invited into the home to deliver a number of 30 minute massages for staff, which for many, was their first experience.
Liliana continues: “This initiative is saying we care about our staff’s feelings. I saw first-hand the positive impact this initiative had on my staff’s well-being.”
Agency staff member, Waidi, remarked: “It’s amazing that management cares about their staff and organises things like this. They all deserve it and I am so thankful for being asked if I wanted to participate as it was a very relaxing experience and a first time for me”.
Solange reflected: “The staff at Woodley Grange work very hard and really do care. It was my pleasure to treat them to a relaxing massage as they have been through a lot during the pandemic.”
We are very proud of our dedicated team who continue to deliver outstanding quality care, that Woodley Grange is well known for.
