Home Life Under Lockdown

It’s not been easy for anyone during these strange times, but we’d particularly like to acknowledge our amazing care staff and all they have been doing for the residents over these last few months, so please join us in thanking them.

We also recognise the extra impact that lockdown has been having on those we care for. Without their island day trips and regular social outings, which before would have formed a crucial part of the residents week, staff have had to find new ways to bring entertainment into the Home.

There have been virtual trips to the zoo, virtual walks on the beach in some wonderful destinations, extra special celebrations for Liberation Day – including Pimms in the garden, and of course plenty of quizzes!

Virtual family catch ups have kept spirits high, whilst cake and special celebratory meals cooked up by Adrian have helped to make birthdays a little more fun, Even David’s jokes continued to be heard, during his regular virtual walk rounds with the care manager.
