Sadly we seem to have heard of two or three losses of loved ones among members of the Care Community over past weeks.
Sometimes we seem never to hear from them again after that, and that always seems such a pity. But I do totally get it, of course.
Along with the grief usually comes a sense of huge relief of the job being over and a need for some rest and recuperation, and going off and doing all those things that you haven't had time to do for so long.
But when you feel a bit more relaxed I hope you'll consider coming back, even just occasionally! We rely so much on the expertise that the people at the 'coal face' have acquired and you are one of those treasured 'skilled' people who can really help and support others on their journey.
So please do give us a thought and come and say 'hi' now and again.
