Since late March, the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic has exposed the health and social care sectors – but for many providers, it was an opportunity to distinguish their services as valued, inclusive, and above all, responsive.
As a family-run business with over 40 years experience at the forefront of specialist dementia care, for the first time, B&M Care was met with unprecedented challenges, but difficult circumstances led to pockets of excellence across all areas of the business. Navigating through a new normal meant the group had to adapt at pace, successfully enabling positive change in daily operations, whilst ring-fencing a focus around best protecting those in our care, as well as our staff.
For many, restrictions on movement cultivated our world to shrink, but a resurgence in community spirit offered each of our homes hope and an opportunity to remain connected with those living close by. Whilst public clapping and political tributes recognised our staff’s tireless commitment, communities were mobilised to stay apart, yet come together, proving that although the pandemic is a global crisis, the scale for action still remains local – and even stronger than before.
As B&M Care moves forward, the health, wellbeing and safety of our residents and staff remains paramount, and as outlined in our dedicated Coronavirus FAQs section, the group has and continues to put in place comprehensive contingency plans to enhance our response to the unprecedented climate – and promote social care as a necessary leading part in the recovery and stability of a post-Covid community.
