CAREGiver Spotlight Judi: "The support I received..."
We caught up with our wonderful CAREGiver Judi recently, who had mentioned the amazing support she received from our office member Becky during the pandemic and the ways in which she was able to keep herself busy through those difficult months.
Judi was happy for us to pop her in the spotlight and share her words…
“The pandemic presented many challenges for me, I found it so hard spending much more time at home. I wanted to keep myself occupied and tried to maintain a positive outlook that the days would get easier, I always hoped the restrictions would end and found each announcement to prolong lock down difficult as I wanted to see my family and new granddaughter.
I knew stopping the spread was important and wanted to keep myself and my family safe. To keep busy, I spent a lot of time in my garden, it became my sanctuary. During the evenings I would knit, crochet, or bake cakes. My new granddaughter had several outfits by the time I got to have my first cuddle.
Finally, I must say that the support I received from Home Instead was so needed and appreciated, my chats with Becky really helped. Now most restrictions have lifted, adapting to life post pandemic has been a challenge itself and I have no idea what I’m going to do with the growing wool ball collection that’s taking over my house. Keep calm and carry on!”
