Nearly a quarter of a million people have seen a care home manager’s Facebook campaign to have the work of care home nurses, carers and ancillary staff recognised alongside NHS workers.
Donna Pierpoint, manager of Broomgrove Nursing Home in Sheffield, said: “The NHS deserve every ounce of praise they get but I want to remind people that the nurses, carers and ancillary staff in care homes like ours work just as hard and deserve equal thanks.
“We’re turning up for work every day to care for some of the most vulnerable people in society. Few people are more prone to the devastating affects of coronavirus than our residents.”
Nearly 2,500 people have now Pierpoint’s original Facebook post in support of her campaign. It has now been viewed by nearly a quarter of a million people.
