Winter is well and truly here, with Christmas drawing ever closer. Whilst most of us are looking forward to spending some time with our families, this is usually the time of year where Care and Support workers are appreciated the most by our Service Users. We also know that some of our Service Users would appreciate an extra special gift for Christmas, so if you haven’t already responded to our Optimo Care Christmas Wish List, please do pass in your nominations to the office as soon as you can or tweet us @optimocare or #2kwishlist. I hope that you enjoy this month’s issue. Here’s to a peaceful and happy Christmas
We have had an exciting month at WarrenCare. In between all of the hard work, we have received some amazing feedback from you all in our recent Employee Survey, and also gave away an iPad Mini to one lucky member of staff. As reported in our WarrenCare News extra issue a couple of weeks ago, we also attended the Great British Care Awards Regional Finals in Manchester, news of which you can see inside this issue!
A fantastic time was had by all in attendance, and our huge congratulations to all the winners. Read on for more information and news about how our nominations fared at the awards. Enjoy this month’s issue!

It doesn't seem so long ago that our newsletter was published in the height of Summer, with an article providing advice on how to keep both yourself and Service Users cool during the hot weather. Autumn is here already and the nights are drawing in. With it comes another set of challenges, with some older people especially, feeling a little isolated with the shorter days. It's good to know then, that WarrenCare Support and Care staff are out there on a daily basis helping people who often would not see anyone throughout the day.
