Our message to the care sector – Thank you for caring

To the people who protect and care for the most vulnerable in our community, we’re always grateful for your work looking after our loved ones.

Now, as you work through one of the most challenging crises we’ve ever faced as a country, we want to send our heartfelt thanks to you and all of your colleagues.

Faced with the pandemic and the growing number of cases in care homes across the country, all care home workers are understandably anxious. This is a stressful time and you are on the frontline.

Right now, you need to be prioritising the safety and wellbeing of residents and team members while also ensuring your business remains stable and sustainable.

To help you focus on providing the best possible care during the coronavirus outbreak, our team at Duncan & Toplis is working closely with managers and owners to make caring for your business as simple as possible.

While we’re unable to visit, we have transformed the way we work to ensure we’re always connected and in closer contact than ever before, delivering the support you need at this time. 

Our healthcare specialists are working with care homes in Lincolnshire and across the East Midlands to ensure their finances are in order, that they’re operating efficiently and that they are able to secure all the financial support they’re entitled to.

We’re working hard to do everything we can to help you protect and care for your residents without the distraction of worrying for your business.

We have supported care homes for more than thirty years. We’ve seen care homes innovate and make sacrifices to protect their residents time and again and we’ve witnessed the incredible strength of character of people throughout the sector. 

While we’ve never experienced a situation like this before, we have absolute faith in the skill, determination and compassion of care home teams.

Thank you for everything you do.

Healthcare, care homes, LinCa
