Lock down

While visiting my dad yesterday, (a Saturday here) the Premier of NSW announced a total lockdown for two weeks beginning 6pm. I decided I wouldn’t risk leaving the nursing home to return to our son’s home for my clothes, medications and, of course, my laptop in case I was turned away after the 80 minute round trip. And, I was right. But, God was good and within half an hour, and before Norm arrived at our son’s home, the nursing home manager phoned me. With Dad the way he is, and us not at all local, I was allocated a room near Dad’s for the length of the lockdown if needed. Norm was not given the same but he’s been honoured the role of delivery boy so he can regularly drop off gluten free foods and necessities. I probably could get a few meals here but they don’t have anything for my allergy diet. With our second Covid vax due this coming week, we’ll have to have it locally. However, I need some approval from the NSW Health to allow me to return to the nursing home after the vaccination as no visitors are allowed in except for special cases approved in special circumstances.

Now, I guarantee that you will only hear the media report all the bad stuff about the Covid restrictions but I for one so much appreciated the management and staff of this nursing home.

Be safe everyone.

  1. You’re right. It was also a new experience to stay in a nursing home lockdown under their policy within the greater lock-down just outside the front door. Be safe.

  2. Yeah, I do. It’s also a time I can people watch, namely, care staff, cleaners, residents and management. No one has that perfect Covid plan but they sure do their jobs well even under pressure with new rules that can change from day to day. Make one appreciate the front line workers all the more.

  3. If the media can’t get a good story honestly, they’ll make it up – or exaggerate or twist it for a headline. I’m so glad management and staff are doing what they can for you and your Dad at this difficult time, Chrissy 💜
