International Nurses Day 2020

Today, we’re saying thank you to nursing staff everywhere for the remarkable contribution they make to the lives of millions of people. International Nurses' Day is celebrated around the world each year on 12 May, the anniversary of Florence Nightingale's birth. This year in particular it’s an extra special occasion because not only does it fall during International Year of the Nurse and Midwife, it also marks the 200th anniversary of Nightingale’s birth. Ordinarily this would be a time for mass celebration, but as nursing staff across the world stand united in responding to the global COVID-19 pandemic, we must use today to shine a light on the remarkable work all health and care staff are doing for the entire nation.

Herefordshire Care Homes enjoy the VE Day Celebrations

Wonderful VE Day celebrations across Herefordshire Care Homes today. The 75th anniversary of the momentous occasion when we marked the end of the war in Europe. We talked a lot today about those times. We drank tea, ate delicious cakes and of course sang our hearts out to Dame Vera Lynn. The residents spoke about certain similarities to the situation we find ourselves in today. Out of the darkness, light shines through, just as it did then and like it is doing now . We are all safe and well, and we will get through this. We fought then, and we fight now. Our current situation is far from ideal, but with the usual stoicism and resilience our residents continue to battle on. We’ll get there, let’s hope it won’t be too long before we can all be together again .
