Dare to care: A special thank you to home care staff from Birdie
December 9, 2020
On #homecareday we really wanted to say a huge thank you to every #homecare provider going above and beyond this year.
Working in homecare has always been a challenging vocation, even before the onset of a major global pandemic. Demanding hours, lack of funding, low pay rates and recruitment challenges are difficult enough to endure, but in 2020, you took it all in your stride whilst serving frontline care to those most vulnerable.
Our team is incredibly humbled and grateful for the work of each and every one of you.
So much so, that our Software Engineer, Marin, took it upon himself to create something to say thank you.
Marin joined us as a Software Intern and is now a full-time member of the Birdie team. Hailing from France, his (now not so) hidden talent is in writing, composing and performing rap music. He knew that he could use his talents to show care staff how grateful we are, and so, he decided to do something about it.
He asked the team: "If we could thank home care workers for one thing this year, what would it be?" And from our responses, he wrote, composed, recorded and created a video for every one of you, using photos from our partner agencies and featuring carers from our Carer of the Week series. ❤️
On Home Care Day, we’re excited to share it with you.
