Caring 4 U client enjoys new activities in lockdown
A long term client at Caring 4 U has been doing so well with her new care team, a change brought about by the pandemic.
We initially believed our client needed just one person supporting her, so she could build trust. However, we introduced a new group of carers to provide consistency of care throughout the lockdown period, as her regular support worker was unable to work due to shielding. With a new team in her package they each brought a fresh approach and enthusiasm that has led to the client being introduced to a range of activities that she would not otherwise have participated in.
The team have all brought their own skills and enthusiasm, so much so, that the client is now cooking from scratch, planning meals, collecting key recipes, shopping for ingredients, as well as many other activities.
This has brought so much positivity to her life and her self-confidence has grown. Here she is enjoying her baking.
