Corporate & Community Responsibility

Corporate Graduate Programmes

The younger generation today are more attracted to companies who take Corporate Responsibility seriously. The result is, companies are more committed to sponsoring initiatives for employees to be involved in. It helps with the engagement levels and makes the programme more attractive to future talent. At the same time the employees will develop skills that benefit the company and the individual.

What skills will the employees develop by being involved in Caring for Care Homes?

Communication – Listening skills – Sensitivity – Empathy – Creativity – Organisation skills – Time Management – Project Management

What kind of projects could I be involved in?

There are a number of ways to be involved; perhaps spending just a few hours, interacting or entertaining the residents. For example, reading to the residents or playing a musical instrument. Some residents may prefer playing chess or simply having someone new with whom they can talk about their life experiences.

It could be a mini project where a team visit the home for a day. For example, you could:

  • paint a dining room
  • create a sensory garden
  • create a garden party for the residents and their relatives
  • provide business skills support for the office admin team

The list is endless and we would love to hear your ideas, our only request is that it generates a sense of fun and celebration!

We had a bank recently who volunteered to take one of their teams into a care home for a day of ‘Apprentice style’ activities. The residents decided who was fired and the care home manager was ‘Lady Sugar.’ More information about this coming soon and will appear in our case studies.

If you are interested in being involved in some way please contact:
Sue Coles on 07876 753920 or one of the Caring for Care Homes team.

Together creating truly great care for older people
