Lockdown Accommodation and Fashion Statement

Here I am into my 5th night of Covid lockdown in the nursing home with my dad. Some days are good while other days/ nights are quite stressful but I’m glad I’m here for him. All the staff members are wonderful. I often wonder how they do this every day. My Dad’s care is quite intense now but they always have a smile for him and for me. Some of the Covid restrictions are quite annoying and the situation is not perfect but it could be much, much worse.

My bed feels like a hospital bed. No. Wait a minute. It IS a hospital bed.
At least I have my own bathroom and privacy. I also have a view of the garden courtyard of which I will take a few photos when time allows.
Wearing masks all day long, except when I return to my room, is quite irritating and not at or comfortable or fashionable. It’s a wonder I don’t freak Dad out when I visit him in the night.
Not a great diet for two weeks but I’m truly thankful for Norm’s front door deliveries and for friends who make sure I don’t go hungry.

Unfortunately, I’m not the easiest person to feed with my wheat and citrus allergies so I do understand why the nursing home won’t feed me and take responsibility. I do get the occasional steamed vegetables, boiled eggs of a piece of cheese to complete some of my needs. As I said, ALL the staff are very caring people.

  2. What’s the thing with all the lights on it – on the floor next to the locker?
    Post some photos of the garden for us when you go for a walk 😊
