"Everything is just the way I like it"

About: North Ayrshire Council - Three Towns, North Coast and Arran

(as a service user),

I’ve had carers from the council for the past 5 weeks. I had a fall at home, I have arthritis in my knees and I couldn’t get back up. I was in hospital for 1 month and they organised my care at home before I got out.

The carers come 3 times each day

• They help me with my shower and prepare breakfast in the morning. They leave a flask of tea and a sandwich for my lunch

• They come to prepare my dinner

• They come to get me ready for bed around 8pm

The carers are awful good. It’s 2 girls that normally come although they are on holiday this week. The times they come are good. I couldn’t do without them.

I’ve got a bracelet now that I can press in case I fall again. The carers have phoned me three times so far to check on me as I must have pushed it by mistake.

Everything is just the way I like it.

Dear Castles,

It is of course very satisfying for us to hear about care provision that is working out well for any of the people we support and I am particulary happy to hear that the service has came at the right time for you.

I will pass on your positive words to the manager of the service you describe and I am sure the staff will be pleased to hear what you have said about the services that they provide.

Once again, many thanks for getting in touch.
