A portrait gallery sharing the everyday lives of carers was presented at The Care Show at the Birmingham NEC this week by everyLIFE Technologies and Bluebird Care Westminster in partnership with lifestyle photographer Sandi Friend.
Sophy Robson, a Care Worker at Bluebird Care Westminster, who features prominently in the exhibition, said: “I’ve been working with old and vulnerable people for three years by supporting them with their day-to-day lives and enabling them to carry on with activities that most of us take for granted, in their own home. I find it extremely rewarding, it makes me happy and I’m proud to do this job. I’m really pleased to be a part of an exhibition that shows the real face of care.”
Robin Batchelor, Chairman and CEO of everyLIFE, added: “The exhibition has had a very positive reception from the thousands of people coming to the Care Show. Closer Still, the event organisers, and Sandi Friend, our very talented photographer, have done a great job of bringing the overwhelmingly positive experience of care to the show. We are sure that many of the delegates here can relate personally to the positive expressions shown by the carers and the people they care for. We hope to add to the gallery of photographs in the coming year and exhibit in more and varied locations.”
