Celebrating Surrey’s care workers
Published: 30 July 2020
Care providers have been going all out to keep residents entertained and supported
From arranging virtual tea parties and "drive-through" family visits to stopping clients falling prey to scammers, Surrey care providers have gone above and beyond during the coronavirus outbreak to boost people's spirits and keep them entertained and supported.
Across the county, providers of care to others, whether in care homes or people's own homes, have come up with new and inventive ways to keep residents active, busy and connected to their families.
With the help of the Surrey Care Association and Surrey Heartlands health and care partnership, we showcased the work of the county's care providers over the course of a week in July that was designated #SurreyCareWeek.

Some of Surrey's residents who rely on the support of care workers showed their thanks in a heartwarming video.

Thank you care workers.
