Hope you are well.
I just wanted to give an extra special thanks and recognition to Dee for what she is doing at the moment with mum and dad.
They have both been a bit difficult lately, not wanting to have their baths and dad especially being a bit grumpy and not being very cooperative.
I think this isolation is getting them a bit down and they are getting a bit frustrated with each other added to which they are both deaf so that's not ideal!
Dee is always cheerful, understanding and genuinely caring with them and manages to persuade them to do things so they feel better afterwards. My dad likes a bit of fuss from Dee and she can get round his obstinacy like no one else. She makes sure that they both eat properly in the evenings.
She has made Thursday Clap for Carers so enjoyable for them, getting them to bang their pots at 8pm, she plays games with them and makes them laugh.
I feel completely at ease when Dee is there as she knows exactly what to do and how my mum and dad like things.
Also a special mention to Maria, they have taken to her very well and mum and dad look forward to her coming. They like that they can speak Italian with her, and treat her like extended family.
Thank you to all the ladies, for their hard work looking after not only their own families but others too.
