My name is *Sheila and I have lived on my own for several years since my husband Ron passed away. My son and grandchildren live in New Zealand, so sometimes I can get very lonely and I can’t always do the things that used to be so simple. I have a wonderful small team of carers. One is called Sarah and she comes to see me 5 times a week. She will help to get up in a morning, washed and dressed and make me some breakfast and a cup of tea. It’s lovely to see a friendly face first thing in the morning to start the day off well.
Some days Sarah will back to see me at lunch time, reminds me to take my medication and makes me a healthy meal. Whilst I am eating my lunch, she is very kind and does a little housework. Other days Sarah will take me out to do my shopping at the supermarket, sometimes she takes me out for a stroll and some fresh air, or out to local café for a cuppa. She may also come back later in the day to help me up the stairs to bed. I am so grateful for Sarah and the rest of my team, they are like family and I don’t know what I’d do without them, I always look forward to seeing them and they really brighten up my day.”
