Betty Firth still lives in the family home she shared with her husband and two sons. With her husband having sadly passed away and her sons now living with their own families, although still very supportive of their mum, Betty requires home care to enable her to remain in the place which still holds so many happy memories.
Four times each day, our carers visit Betty to provide personal care. This ranges from helping her out of bed on a morning, although she still often does this by herself, through to making her breakfast, lunch and dinner, getting her medication ready and ensuring she is settled on an evening.
Betty says: “I can no longer see very well and I am not great on my feet, so it’s nice to know I have the support from Caremark in addition to the help I get from my family.
“All the carers are very good and each have their own personalities, which I like because it makes each day different.“It can be lonely living by yourself so I look forward to their visits.
“It’s nice to chat with them.”
One of Betty’s carers is Cheryl Boswell, who says: “Betty is a lovely lady who loves to chat while you are making her breakfast or lunch.“She tells me she goes out dancing every night and I always ask why she never takes me!”
