CDRCN staff worked in partnership with Down Community Transport and Health & Social Care yesterday, delivering Florence Cakes to Nursing Homes throughout the South Eastern Trust area.
HSCNI sent cakes to Nursing and Residential Care Homes all over Northern Ireland, a small token of their appreciation for the professionalism, skill and compassion that nurses are providing to the people in their care.
A note from HSCNI: On this 200th Anniversary of the birth of Florence Nightingale, it is important that we acknowledge the value of the nursing care and support provided to all people living in nursing and residential care homes. This care is provided by the nurses, by the care assistants, by the cleaners and by the cooks. Florence Nightingale is famous for her work to promote sanitary conditions for the care of the sick and our modern approach to Infection Prevention and Control is at the heart of our response to this current pandemic. Thank you for your continued effort in these difficult times. Thank you also to Howells Bakery for baking enough Florence Cakes to deliver three to every Care Home. And thank you to the small army of volunteer drivers from Community and Voluntary Sector organisations across Northern Ireland who have assisted us with delivery.
