We are helping spread awareness against scams protecting those who may be at risk.
It's not too late to become a champion to!! Complete your online training now!
This week was a perfect opportunity to engage our staff in an interactive way with a range of materials and resources. We have had a lot of interaction as a result. This week has been important to us as we have noticed as a domiciliary care company there has been a dramatic increase in the number of clients with diabetes. We therefore feel that it is important to give our staff the skills and support to be able to provide clients with the best possible care. This week has aided in making this possible.
Beech tree's internal competition will announce its winners this week!
Hypo Awareness Week judges have completed their assessments and thanks Beech Trees stunning efforts, I am thrilled to announce that we were one of the runners up for the Hypo Awareness Week Excellence Award 2018.
After KICA judges sifted through hundreds of nominations and worked their way through interviews for this years awards ceremony...
Beech tree would like to congratulate Jo for coming runner up in the 'Best manager' category and Vince runner up in the 'Dementia Carer' award. A fantastic achievement for both them and Beech Tree. We would like to congratulate all those who were nominated and those who successfully made it through.
Scams can come in a number of different forms and are normally uninvited:
The main goal of a scam being to con victims out of money by making false promises. The most common occurrences we hear of being prize draws, sweepstakes and lotteries.

We are also encouraging everyone to complete the following training to help spread awareness in order to protect our service users, loved ones and those particularly at risk.
FRIENDS AGAINST SCAMS TRAINING

With the high temperatures being experienced currently in the UK it is quite easy to forget what country we are in. But more importantly staying hydrated. We are urging both our staff and clients to stay safe, cool and well this Summer.
Andrea Sutcliffe CBE, Chief Inspector of Adult Social Care, said: “While many of us are enjoying the heatwave, the risks of overheating and not getting enough to drink are much greater for older people and people in vulnerable circumstances.
“That is why it is so important that those living in care homes and other health and care settings, particularly people living with long-term illnesses and complex conditions, are appropriately monitored and supported to maintain their usual health and wellbeing.
“Most of this is common sense – thinking about the environment and having person-centred care plans will help you to identify people at greatest risk and make sure they have the support they need.
“There’s also lots of good advice available from Public Health England and NHS England in the Heatwave Plan for England including specific advice for care homes as well as hospital services. Information published by the Care and Support Alliance has a useful section on extreme weather conditions too.
“So, let’s enjoy the summer sunshine but let’s prepare and be #TempAware too.”
