Our Alloway service is making a great effort to encourage Carol and Doris to stay connected with their family.

Carol and Doris have had to shield as a result of lockdown. They have not been able to go out and socialise as they would normally. The team realised how challenging and isolating would be, so they worked hard to provide solutions for Doris and Carol to keep in touch with their families.

The team encouraged video calls, which allowed both Doris and Carol to speak regularly to their families.

Doris and Carol can now see some of their family members, now that the rules are slowing relaxing. When the weather is decent enough, some of the family members visit at a social distance. This involves the family being in the garden, whilst Doris and Carol remain inside. This gives them a chance to sit by the window and catch up with them.
