Training Blog – November

November saw the first of our wellbeing workshops. They were greatly enjoyed by those who attended. During the workshops we discussed stress management, how to get a better night’s sleep and how to get that work/life balance right. We also looked at how to be more mindful and even practiced some relaxing breathing techniques.

If you have any suggestions for topics to cover in these sessions, please email me with your ideas. The next wellbeing workshop will be in January so please see check your emails for details. We should all try and find time for ourselves each week, even if it is only a couple of hours!

We also welcomed six new starters in November and look forward to working with them.

Because it’s almost Christmas, I’d like to thank you all for attending training throughout the year. I would especially like to thank Thomas, John and John for contributing so well to my training. They really do enhance our induction programme!

Wishing you all a very Happy Christmas and a safe, healthy and Happy New Year!

Celebrating 25 years’ service

The 8th of August 2019 marked the 25th year that our Team Manager, Carol Clemenson has worked for Augusta Care and our sister company Hereward Care Services.

To celebrate, Carol and the rest of the head office and management staff teams went to Peterborough Greyhounds at the weekend. Before our delicious food was served Carol was presented with some gifts and it wasn’t long before the races started. We had quite a few winners on the night and Carol even got to present the trophy to the winning dog and her handler on race 8.

I’m sure all of Carol’s colleagues will join in thanking her for her continued service and commitment to the company and the people we support. Congratulations on 25 years’ service, it’s certainly an achievement.
