The Harrogate office of Carefound Home Care supports older people in Harrogate, Ripon and Wetherby and this week their team of professional carers have been out delivering Easter eggs and spending time reminiscing with their clients.

Lorna Miles, Registered Branch Manager at Carefound Home Care in Harrogate, said:

“The risks of social isolation and loneliness have increased since the pandemic and it’s so important to stop and take the time to enjoy events such as Easter with older people in our local community.”

“Taking a moment to treat our clients and celebrate Easter with them is something we love doing every year and it’s been just brilliant to see the smiles and joy it brings this week.”

“It’s also been a delight to gift our incredible staff Easter treats this year who make such a huge difference to the lives of our clients and their families by helping them continue to live safely at home.”

Brian and Daphne Philpott, who live in Ripon, reminisced about Easter with their carer from Carefound Home Care:

“We have many Easter memories. When we were younger Brian would be working a lot and Daphne’s family had no money to buy Easter eggs. But later on, we would enjoy going to St Nicholas’ Church together and celebrating Easter in the Church of England. Happy Easter everybody!”
