It's never too early to start planning for the New Year
Let's set a date...

We have all heard or said it before… ‘New Year, New Me’.

But how many actually see this through?

Not many of us, in fact research has shown that 80% of us fail in sticking to our New Year’s resolutions by the second week of February.

Making a resolution is a great way to make a truly positive change in our lives and there is no better time to do this than the clean slate of a brand new year.

This year however, why not try something different?

Instead of giving something up or swearing off chocolate to fit into those jeans in time for summer, you could try something new and add another string to your bow.

This could be the year you could finally learn that musical instrument, or take the ultimate plunge and go bungie jumping!

Now while we can’t offer you the opportunity to achieve that, what we can do is help you make a workplace resolution and give you and your staff the chance to learn some important new skills.

One of our most popular partnership benefits is our free staff training sessions, and they are a fantastic way to engage your staff and build new skills together.

It is also an excellent way to kick off 2018 with some team-building which also benefits your residents, win-win!

During our session a member of our team will take you through our ‘visual impairment experience’, giving your staff the chance to take turns in wearing specialised glasses which simulate what life looks like living with common eye conditions.

By the time the session is over both you and your staff will leave with a renewed sense of empathy for someone living with glaucoma, macular degeneration, cataracts or diabetic retinopathy.

But of course, don’t just take our word for it! Here is what our partners at brighterkind had to say about this experience.

Alongside this, our free staff training will focus on building new skills and show you how to properly look after your resident’s eyes every day.

So if you are looking to start 2018 off with your own workplace resolution in your care residence, our free training session is a perfect way to do so!

If you are currently a Visioncall partner and wish to arrange your free staff training session or simply want some more information on doing this in your care residence call us today on 0800 035 6316 or email us here
