CARE HOME VISITS: Winnie & Lisa react to care home announcement

Many of us will have only seen our nearest and dearest via video chat since the pandemic began, with the lack of human contact cited by many as one of the hardest parts of this past year.

Last March, Care homes up and down the UK brought in strict measures to help protect their residents and staff, which naturally meant minimising the amount of people allowed on the premises. But now, having been restricted from sharing a hug or holding hands, residents will be breathing a sigh of relief at the announcement that they may now welcome one designated visitor from the eighth of March. We spoke to Lisa and Winnie at the Eothen home in Gosforth about the news.

Lisa told us that though she and the team have missed being able to head out and about with residents on day trips, that they didn't let this stop them from having fun. Making sure that there was plenty of activities and entertainment going on throughout the home.
