I have council carers four times a day and they are very good.
The carers are cheery in the morning and they’re good at their job. I’ve been put off the shower after I had a fall and quite often I prefer a bed bath. The girls wash me so I feel just as clean as if I’d had a shower, they washed my hair in bed this morning.
I’ve got a good crew. The morning carers come back and give me lunch. Then I have carers that give me dinner and come back to put me to bed. You can have a good blether and they’re interested in what I’ve done and where I’ve been.
I know all the girls. I have one carer who is crazy, she’s always singing (not in tune! ) and has a song for everything. It really brightens your morning.
I’m really happy with the service. The only thing I would change is that I would like dinner around 5. 30 and sometimes the carers come at 4. 15. I feel it’s a big gap before they come back at night to get me ready for bed.
I’m really grateful for everything I get, I know not everyone is as lucky.
