What does a carer do?
Check out a day in the life of a Devoted carer
Maria brings her client, David a cup of tea and switches on the radio so he can listen to the news.
David normally gets up at 8.00 but today he feels like a relaxed start. Maria then helps him to get up and wash, before having breakfast.
David enjoys crosswords and Maria helps him to fill in the answers as she reads out the clues. Once that’s completed, they discuss the shopping list for this weeks meals
Maria cooks a light lunch and then David has a nap in his favourite chair, whilst Maria has her break
A quick walk to the shop ensures everyone gets some fresh air. David’s mobility is improving but he still needs his wheelchair, then back for a cup of tea and slice of cake.
Maria starts to prepare dinner and David sits in the kitchen helping with peeling the vegetables as they chat about his younger years
After dinner they both sit down to watch the latest David Attenborough nature programme and the news
Mara helps David to get ready for bed and then leaves him enjoying a good book
