Happy New Year to you all! We are all looking forward to 2015 with lots of exciting developments in the pipeline, of which we will keep you all informed.

Our care and nursing staff did a wonderful job in keeping all of our service users safe and cared for over Christmas and New Year. They all work extremely hard to ensure that our high standards of care are delivered and fully appreciate that care does not stop for the Christmas festivities. We are extremely humbled at their continued support and dedication to us.

We are always recruiting for valued team members and in order to spread the Essential word, we are extremely excited with our new billboard that is in place just around the corner from our office at the brow of Old Wareham Road. Running alongside our Heart radio campaign we are looking forward to welcoming new members to our ever growing team of nursing and care staff.
Fundraising
Essential continue to work alongside Salisbury Hospital in order to assist with their staffing solutions. It is a delight to work with their nurse bank and we are looking forward to our continued business relationship. We are continuing to assist Marie Curie to maintain the excellent service that they provide for palliative service users. Providing caring, professional, dignified end of life care is why we do what we do and it makes us extremely proud to be able to offer our services to service users at their time of great need.

We have brought a second piece of equipment to assist one of our service users. Mr W had great difficulty in putting on his socks which was brought to our attention by our Assessor, Michael. A simple, yet effective piece of equipment was purchased from our fundraising pot and delivered last Friday. Mr W was really thankful for the gift and said, “ it will make a massive difference to him every day. Thank you all for your kindness and I very much appreciate all of the help and support we give him!

Fundraising
Our team have been working hard on some recent fundraising events. We were delighted to present fundraising cheques, totalling a staggering £2,500 to charities that are close to our hearts, The Alzheimer's Society and Forest Holme Hospice further to our extremely successful summer fayre.

Our recent mulled wine and mince pie mingle was a great day and it was lovely to see all of the staff that came to share our Christmas cheer.

Our fundraising committee are working hard to organise forthcoming events. We will keep you posted once these have been finalised.
