Konrad Czajka expresses gratitude and thanks to so many during Covid-19 pandemic

Konrad Czajka expresses gratitude and thanks to so many during Covid-19 pandemic

Mother Teresa said ‘It’s not about how much we give but how much love we put into giving’ and we have certainly experienced the kindness and love of so many throughout the Covid-19 pandemic and lockdown.

 

Czajka’s managing director, Konrad Czajka, said: “We are extremely grateful to all of the people who have brought much joy and happiness into our homes and retirement communities during the coronavirus. We have all had to adapt and accept the restrictions and work hard to ensure all possible precautions are taken, and it’s thanks to our amazing team, our stoical residents, their supportive families and friends, as well as the wider local communities in Saltaire, Shipley, Bradford, Keighley and Skipton that we have been able to remain so positive.

“The care and thoughtfulness shown to our hard working staff from local schools and businesses has been humbling. We have been able to supplement our own supplies of PPE equipment with donations of face visors from Bradford Grammar School, Hanson Academy, Five Landis and Nautical Vapes. BHP Accountants also arranged for a donation of face visors via ‘Made In Yorkshire’ which were manufactured by SI Mouldings.

“Donations of food hampers, chocolate treats and break time snacks from Greggs, Prep N Go, Morrisons, Dominos and local plumber James Holden, have all been gratefully received and eagerly consumed! HSBC has also donated bedding plants and hand creams to our Currergate Nursing Home alongside goodies for its virtual summer holiday, which starts this week. Our residents will be ‘virtually visiting’ Mexico, Hawaii, Jamaica, India and Australia over the coming weeks.

“The letters and artwork we have received from children at Thackley Primary School, Crossley Hall Primary School and the grandchildren of our residents and children and grandchildren of our staff has really bought a smile to so many faces. The bright and positive pieces of artwork have been lovingly made into inspirational displays taking pride of place in all five of our homes. They act as a constant reminder of the support we have.

“Throughout the lockdown, our staff have not only been caring for our residents’ physical needs, but ensuring that they are supporting them mentally too. With restrictions on visitors we have set up virtual visiting with Facetime calls, special messages on social media and regular calls and updates to families.

“We have also been taking advantage of the recent sunshine, having meals outside including BBQs and take away fish and chips. At our Fairmount Nursing Home our residents and our retired residents at Fairmount Park have all been entertained with a live performance from singer Brian Richardson, who performed safely outside on the bowling green. At Brookfield Care Home we had a fabulous visit from Dino the dancing Dinosaur and our younger residents at Staveley Birkleas have also been eating outside and enjoying their arts and crafts sessions out on the decking listening to music.

“Every one of our homes pulled out all the stops for VE Day. It was an important milestone to celebrate, as many of our residents lived through it, and it was incredible to see the creativity and thoughtful planning that went into the day. With specially made VE Day commemorative cakes, buns and pies alongside decorations and a musical trip down memory lane, we were able to safely mark the 75th anniversary of VE Day in style.

“As the lockdown continues it’s important to recognise all these individual acts of kindness and thank each and every one of our incredible team, the family and friends of our residents and everyone in our local community who have helped us all to not just keep going – but to keep smiling. We have certainly felt the love in every act of giving.”
