I'm reminded it must be our first birthday about now, as our annual insurance is due for renewal! An appropriate time to reflect on our first year, and what an amazing journey it has been. From concept to reality; from nothing to having about 30 volunteers in 15 care homes across the Borough of Richmond.
So much to be thankful for and so many people who have played a part. Our funders, our volunteers, our supporters, our advisors, our prayer partners, and care home managers who have trusted us and welcomed us into their care homes.
We are not resting on our laurels, there is still more we can do! This week I did my training to become a dementia champion. We have some exciting plans afoot to focus on end of life dementia care, as you'll see from our Namaste Care page. We're also going to be working with churches to look at ways of ministering to people with dementia.
Care home friends will continue - we plan to double the number of volunteers this year and we are well on our way to doing that.
Thank you to everyone who has played a part over this last year.
