TAP (Thank And Praise)

The TAP social thanking platform was launched in January 2019 by parents Sandie and Phillip Curtis whose special needs son Donavan has received outstanding care from the education and healthcare sector over the past 18 years.

Committed to creating a positive world where giving and receiving thanks is the norm not the exception.

It has never been more important to show our gratitude to healthcare and education workers, especially in these unprecedented times.

TAP’s social thanking platform makes it easier for people to thank society’s Unsung Heroes. Thanking is a simple yet positive action that hugely benefits both the recipient and the giver of thanks. We believe that by enabling members of the public to quickly and easily thank we can end the culture of complaining and replace it with one of thanking and showing appreciation. It’s a big dream but one we are determined to fulfil.

To register and to send messages of thanks is quick and easy (it literally takes a minute) and users can do so via almost any digital channel. The aim is to reduce barriers to sending messages of thanks (barriers like not knowing the contact details of the person you want to thank, or not having the address of the organisation, or not having time to post a card or say thanks in person). Through TAP’s platform all you need is one minute, the name of the person you want to thank and where they work and away you go!

TAP is designed to enhance the mental wellbeing of key workers in healthcare and education, with no cost to organisations and no implementation processes. While raising much-needed funds.

We’re welcoming new residents

The health, safety, and wellbeing of our residents, patients and staff is always our top priority as we continue to celebrate life across all of our care homes.

Our homes are vaccinated against Covid-19 and if not already done, we will facilitate your vaccine when you move in.

We are currently welcoming new residents, for both short-and long-term placements.

Visiting a loved one?

Residents are allowed five named visitors with a maximum of two visitors at any one time. All visits must be arranged or booked in advance with the home to avoid disappointment.

During each visit, the visitor must wear PPE, minimise physical contact, as well as follow all other infection control measures, such as social distancing.

Visitors will be tested for COVID-19 using the rapid lateral flow tests before entering the home at each visit.

Visitors should observe strict social distancing from other residents, visitors and staff

If you have any questions, we’re happy to answer them prior to your arrival.
