Carer of the month – Patience

Patience joined the Elder platform back in February 2020. Since then she has provided 76 weeks  of care.

“She has planted lots of vegetables and salad and is also tidying up the garden so that it will be nice for my mother-in-law in the summer, when she will hopefully be able to get out of bed. In addition, and even more special is the way that Patience speaks to my mother-in-law as a person, not as a patient. She spends time reassuring her when she’s feeling down or worried about something and has already become a very important part of our family.

Another extra bonus for the family is that Patience is a fantastic conversationalist who engages in really interesting topics of conversation with anyone and everyone which is great for stimulating our brains as well as my mother-in-laws. Anyone who gets Patience as a carer has truly hit the jackpot.”
