You can hear Martin at various times across the week. He says:
"The past year has certainly highlighted the difficult, yet amazing work the care sector provides.
"We know it’s always been there, but it’s probably now at the forefront of our minds more than ever. And when we think about it, we all probably know somebody - a friend, a colleague or family member - who provides that care, either professionally or unpaid.
"I still recall the wonderful work of the staff at a local care home in providing my grandma with support and comfort in her final days while suffering with dementia.
"With Care Radio, I feel the opportunity to give something back through such a personal medium is not one to be missed. It’s a chance not only to say thank you, but to be a friend, a supporter and a companion to those providing all that and more, day in, day out."
