Radis Community Care colleagues across England and Wales observed the National Day of Reflection today.

Organised by charity Marie Curie, the day marked the anniversary of the first national lockdown imposed during the Covid-19 pandemic. As part of the day, people across the country paused for a minute’s silence at midday to remember all those who have died or lost loved ones as a result of the virus.

Deepesh Patel, CEO and Founder of Radis Community Care said: “Today is a day of mixed emotions. Whilst we remember all those who have sadly lost their lives during the pandemic and their family and friends who will be mourning lost loved ones, we also reflect on the past year with a great deal of pride for our colleagues.

“Not only have they risen to the challenge of keeping vulnerable clients well cared-for during extraordinarily difficult circumstances, but so many have gone above and beyond to do everything that they can to put a smile on the faces of clients and colleagues alike.We have an amazing team of resilient colleagues who are ready to take on whatever the next year brings, and we are so very thankful for their hard work and commitment.”
