I started having carers at home about 1 year ago after I had spent a long period of time in hospital. It is the same carers who come every day; one person covers the mornings and one person the afternoons.
The carers come four times a day;
- In the morning they help me get washed and dressed and get my breakfast
- They come back to give me lunch
- They come at dinner time
- They come in the evening to help me get ready for bed
The service is very good. The carer comes early if I have the day centre to make sure I’m ready on time but I can have a long lie on other days. A long lie is lovely, especially on a Sunday. The carers are very friendly, I’ve gotten to know them really well and can relate to them better than my family at times.
