Homecare Day will be held on Thursday 22 September 2022.
This is a largely online event which looks to celebrate and recognise the homecare services across the UK. Whether you are a provider, worker or partner, we would love to hear your positive good-news stories about the care at home/housing support sector.
The theme of Homecare Day is ‘Homecare Voices’ with the aim to:
- Listen to the voices of care at home & house supporting staff, providers, managers, service users and relatives.
- Showcase the expertise of the homecare workforce, and how they should be valued more.
- Highlight how homecare plays a crucial role in the health and social care system and within their communities.
You can help us commemorate the day by sharing any good news stories, resources, projects, blogs or an example of an innovative practice on social media.
Please use the hashtags below when sharing content, and will re-share from the Scottish Care account.
If you aren’t on social media, please feel free to share any stories with us at [email protected].
We will be creating some resources for members to use on Homecare Day, these will be sent out in the next weeks.
Light Up for Carers
The Partners for Integration team, along with Scottish Care, will be marking ‘Homecare Day’ by lighting up buildings in Scotland to give thanks to the homecare and social care workforce.
A full list of buildings involved in this initiative will be sent out closer to the time.
The buildings will be lit up in the colour yellow, which was chosen to symbolise the flame of a candle, much like our ‘Candle for Care’ campaign on Twitter.
The homecare sector shows us caring, resilience and compassion at its best. Yet this workforce is often undervalued and not recognised. This workforce deserves recognition for their dedication and professionalism every day of the week, regardless of weather, risk or fear.
This is the perfect opportunity to acknowledge the social care workforce and we encourage care home workers to join the celebration at these buildings on the evening of Thursday 22 September.
