Magic Moments in Homecare
It’s often the small things that make the biggest difference to people’s lives and well-being. Back in March 2019 The Wales School for Social Care Research and The Gwent Regional Partnership Team hosted an event that invited domiciliary carers from across the region to share kind, compassionate and heart-warming stories of the care and support they provide. The stories that were shared that day were compiled into a booklet and a few were captured on video.
Making a positive connection with people, supporting them to make a contribution, however small and to do the things many of us take for granted can have a huge impact on a person’s life, health and wider well-being. It is these small acts of kindness, which often go unseen, that the two following videos capture. They celebrate the commitment, compassion and skills of home care staff across Gwent and we hope they might inspire others to create their own ‘Magic Moments’ and make a positive difference to those Gwent citizens who require care and support.
