"So good to recognise carers"

About: Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust

(as a staff member posting for a carer/relative),

Shared on behalf of a carer at Rosewood Involvement Centre:

Have had a fabulous time at Rosewood Involvement Centre. Today's carers event had a great vibe and importance. I loved the music, massage, food, care, love and appreciation. Thank you to all.

I had a chance to speak to people and be heard, and a chance to laugh and feel happy. It was helpful and hopeful for carers.

The carer event was wonderful. So good to recognise carers. Good food, music, lots of jolly laughter and a very happy atmosphere. Absolutely excellent. Thank you. It's such a family gathering! I hope that Rosewood will continue forever.

Thank you for your posting. It is so wonderful to hear that the Carers Event was so positive for you. I will ensure your comments are heard by all involved, the team worked so hard to organise the event and I know they will all appreciate you taking the time to post. It is lovely to hear that you felt you were given the chance to talk and that you felt listened to. Also fantastic to hear that you felt amongst "Family" and were able to have a laugh. Feedback like this helps us to see if we are meeting the needs of carers and will guide us in planning future similar events. Thank you again.
