Carers Week is an annual campaign to raise awareness of caring, and recognise the contribution carers make to individuals, families and their communities.
The campaign is brought to life by thousands of individuals and organisations, who come together to draw attention to how important caring is.
As well as providing residential care for older people with sight loss and people with dementia, Vista has two homes for adults who have a visual impairment and learning disabilities (Simmins Crescent and Applegarth).
Each person is supported to make decisions for themselves, with the aim being to support each person to take control over their own life.
Our dedicated, highly-trained teams are committed to delivering an excellent standard of care. To mark this year’s Carers Week, we have spoken to Bridget, who has been supporting Applegarth resident Maggie for several years.
Caring can be a rich source of satisfaction in people's lives. It can help deepen and strengthen relationships. It can teach you skills and help you realise potential you never thought you had.
Thank you to our carers at our residential homes – every one of you makes a real difference to improve the lives of our residents.
