MACMILLAN COFFEE MORNING

Primecare Health Ltd held a coffee morning on Friday 28th September in support of MacMillan, we raised an staggering £350. I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who attended and donated so generously, we will really have to raise the bar to beat this total next year.
 

Meet Jessie!

Primecare Health Ltd would like to introduce you to Jessie the newest member of the Primecare family.
Due to the challenges we face with Recruitment as a Care at Home Provider in Edinburgh, Primecare Health Ltd are investing time, resources and money to innovatively solve the problem by taking Jessie also affectionately known as (Miss Daisy) on the road.
Primecare will offer Interviews in Jessie at convenient locations throughout Edinburgh on a weekly basis. We will also support our existing staff by using Jessie as a Welfare Vehicle where staff will be able to access advice, 121 support, information, PPE, Gloves and blether books.
We look forward to seeing you in the community week commencing 27th August 2018

Come along and meet Jessie

Working Better Together

Our latest service user event was held on 11th October at the Marriot Hotel, Edinburgh. The focus of this group was to discuss aspects of Primecare’s recruitment process; the following documents were reviewed and agreed:

  • Care worker person specification
  • Care worker interview questions
  • Care worker interview scoring matrix
  • Care worker job advert

The Poem was written by Primecare Health Ltd staff member Breedge Reid who feels very passionately about Palliative Care

If I am unable to speak to you
I can still hear you,
Talk to me I'm still here
We all live and we all die
Please make my journey run smoothly
Let me be surrounded by people, who care,
If it is the last thing you do for me let both my journey and end be filled with
dignity, respect and be pain free When you go home you can say to yourself Jessie
lived and died well and take pride in the part you played as a caring and
compassionate human being You never know when it may be your turn. Ask
yourself what would you want?
