Carers versus corona virus — March 25, 2020

Carers versus corona virus

These unprecedented times call for special measures, from all of us individually and as a community. I’ve pulled together everything both corona virus and carer-relevant on a new page here. The situation is changing fast so for as long as I can, I’ll update the page daily rather than bombard you with too many posts or emails. You may want to ‘bookmark’ the page and check in every now and again.

If you’d like a bit more company, you can also follow and/or chat with me (Maud) on Facebook or Twitter. Maud & Mum is also on Instagram if you’re interested in our daily life (it’s not like the Kardashians). Just search for @maudandmum. More than ever, we could all do with a bit more (virtual) company.

Like you, I’m scared but also determined to keep the corona virus out of my home. Good luck to you and your families, love

Older adult social care services and how they help

It’s very important to engage social care services early on. I explain here how you do it and what to expect.  Warning – this post is long, but it’s important (and it’s shorter than the ‘official’ bumpf).  I’ll explain how it works in Bucks so double check for your county. In the meantime take a tea break and curl up on a sofa with this for 10 mins.
