RMBI Care Co. teams up with The Access Group

RMBI Care Co. has teamed up with The Access Group (Access), welcoming the team to their care homes as part of their Giving Back Initiative.

“We’ve been working with Access for over 10 years to supply our care planning and medication management systems. I found out about their Giving Back initiative last year, which offers each employee a day where they can volunteer or take part in something of real interest and value to them to support others in need,” says Lucy Tupenny, Assistant Director of Quality and Governance at RMBI Care Co.

Lucy adds: “We were keen to build on our partnership so, together, we have been identifying small projects in our 17 care homes in England and Wales that Access’ employees can come and support as part of their Giving Back Day.”

The first event took place in March at Devonshire Court, in Leicester, where Access employees supported a Dementia Day and led an afternoon craft session with tea. In May, some of the team visited Prince Michael of Kent Court, in Watford, where they helped with a variety of jobs, including painting fences and trellises, gardening and moving materials in the garden area.

Shalini B, Development Operations Team Lead at Access, said: “It was a really good experience, working with my colleagues and helping the care home with their chores. I actually got that task-accomplished feeling which is amazing. It was voluntary work, but we put our souls into it to get the tasks completed.”

Other Giving Back Days planned include building an ice cream shed at Cornwallis Court, in Bury St Edmunds, and creating a sensory garden at Cadogan Court, in Exeter.
