We’ve been asking our Christies Carers just how they are beating the boredom with their clients.
Here’s Christies Carer, Clare, isolating with her client, Mary, at home:
“We are both busy bees, so Mary is knitting blankets to donate to Mothers Union that’ll end up in Africa.
We’ve also been making hats for premature babies.
Mary has also been inspired by Major Tom walking 100 lengths of his driveway so she did 87 laps around the garden before her birthday on the 22nd.
Mary is an incredible, positive person with a lovely sense of humour. Having recently been disappointed with not being able to travel back to South Africa, I think she’s keeping my spirits up more than I’m keeping hers up.
I’m extremely lucky to be here.”
We’ve also compiled some tips for our clients and carers to help you stay in touch and resources for beating the boredom. Check back often as we’ll be adding new tips all the time.
