International Women’s Day was celebrated in style at Caremark (Dublin North) recently, with a number of events arranged for all care and support workers to mark the big day, and to highlight the hard work and dedication of Caremark’s female staff all across north Dublin.
With more than 120 women employed as care and support workers, care manager Aislinn Bobbett said she wanted to acknowledge their work. She said: “This is the first time we held an event like this, and it was so successful it will be a regular event. The day was full of care and support workers popping in between calls for a make-up treatment, which was kindly supplied by Boots, and a hand massage, while Boots Pharmacy also supplied a health check for all our care and support workers.”
Organiser Mandy Murphy said: “The care staff work at the clients’ homes, so it was a great opportunity to meet and talk to other care and support workers over a cup of coffee at the office. International Women’s Day is very important to celebrate the contribution of women throughout our society.”
