International Nurses Day is celebrated around the world every year on the anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s birth, to mark the contributions nurses make to society.
Waypoints marked the occasion by sending each of its 33 nurses a flower and message across its 3 dementia-specialist care homes in the south including Upton and Verwood. Waypoints chose to send each nurse a peony for its special meaning as it symbolises compassion as well as a happy life and good health.
Waypoints Care’s managing director Andrew Baxendine added “we’re proud of all our staff as they help to make the lives of our residents living with dementia as happy and comfortable as possible. The flower and message we sent to each of our nurses on International Nurses Day is just a small token of appreciation as they make such a huge difference to each and every one of our residents’ lives – thank you.”
Waypoints Care Group runs three specialist dementia care homes based in Dorset and Plymouth. Each home is purpose-built and designed specifically for people living with dementia. The Waypoints ethos is to make all residents feel as comfortable, safe and happy as possible, supporting them throughout the different stages of dementia.
