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.
