Mr A. B. lived with his wife in a house next to his daughter's. His daughter had a farm for turkeys and was very busy with the business over Christmas. Daughter couldn't look after them and found a rest home for them for a short term
The daughter was their main carer. Being unable to do so for the Christmas period she had to put them in a residential home where they were not happy and she had to bring them back home in 1 week. Without us that wouldn't be possible.
Mr A. B. was so happy to be back home. He felt much more secure, loved and comfortable. His wellbeing improved dramatically and he felt our carer as part of the family. He enjoyed activities like games, favourite movies, books and songs.
The carer organized friend’s gatherings and cooked for all. They played bridge and she took them to play bingo. The carer escorted them for Christmas shopping, she took them out to have meals in their favourite restaurants and listened to Christmas Carols together.
The daughter was over the moon to be able to work without worries for her parents. She went to Scotland with her family for Christmas for a week - something that never happened before and left Care Worker to celebrate with Mr and Mrs A. B..
They wouldn't stay in the residential home, the daughter had to struggle and look after them, leaving her busy farm business behind. She had a nervous breakdown unable to cope with the stress, so understandably the family were all are very delighted, when circumstances changed.
