Letter from Glen Garrod

Dear colleagues

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for making such a tremendous effort in supporting our most vulnerable residents in Lincolnshire in the face of the current Covid-19 crisis.

There is so much resilience and dedication being shown across the whole county. All our domiciliary care and care homes are operating despite such challenging circumstances including the 270 commissioned by the county council.

We are proud to be a part of a wider social care sector with care workers in care homes and domiciliary care caring for the Lincolnshire residents whether or not they have Covid-19. While we applaud the work of nursing and hospital
staff, you are equally heroes and an ‘essential’ part of the health and care services.

Everyone is doing their bit to keep people safe and well and being so creative in finding alternative ways to support people. We know you really are going the extra mile in difficult circumstances to work with vulnerable people in a safe

And a big acknowledgement and thank you to the families of colleagues working in social care for supporting them as they continue their work. We will continue to support our carers and those they work for to ensure residents get the excellent care they need.

Keep safe, healthy and well with your families and friends.

Yours sincerely

Glen Garrod
