The Home First Kelso Team helped to provide care for my mum over December 2020 following her discharge from hospital after recovering from pneumonia. Unfortunately she had contracted covid whilst in hospital and it quickly became clear that she was deteriorating rapidly. The Home First ladies did an amazing job of providing personal care to my mum, as well as showing great compassion and assisting her to preserve some dignity when she was completely bed bound. They were so lovely to her and assisted in allowing my mum to stay at home during her last few weeks which is what she really wanted, rather than being confined to a covid ward in the hospital. They also provided immense support, both practical and emotional, to me as I looked after her during her last few weeks and I know I would not have been able to cope without their visits. I am so very grateful to all the lovely ladies in the team and I will never be able to fully express my gratitude to them for everything they did for me and my mum.
