Thank-you carers, you’re amazing
How do you recognise people for doing something exceptional that they do because they are deeply committed to doing it?
That was the question facing AQA service and rostering leaders as the COVID-19 emergency drew on.
AQA disability support staff, along with carers everywhere, have shown extraordinary resilience at a time of high anxiety and widespread uncertainty.
They have been serving their clients quietly, with determination and little public acknowledgement.
AQA Practice Leader Cate Belleville thought our clients too might welcome a chance to express their appreciation for carers’ warmth and strength.
Cate asked the question. The answer was an overwhelming Yes.
The result is the video message to carers that you can view here, from clients, office staff and AQA directors.
Contributions were edited by volunteer Richard Balsillie – and backed with an original theme song from Olivia Little, who moonlights on the AQA reception desk.
We hope you enjoy it.
