Patricia White’s live-in carer Coral instantly brings sunshine to Argyll couple’s home
Having someone new come to live in your home can be a very daunting prospect. Your home is your private sanctuary where you have your own routines and ways of doing things. This was how Mr and Mrs L felt when they needed a carer to move into to their rural Argyll home for several months to support Mr L with care following a broken hip and Covid recovery.
Struggling to manage on their own, we introduced them to Coral. Coral is a highly trained and experienced carer full of warmth and kindness, who instantly put the couple at ease and slotted seamlessly into their home, always ensuring that she respected their privacy. Mr L greatly enjoyed Coral’s company. With both sharing an interest in world affairs, Coral genuinely enjoyed listening to his stories and views on the topic.
Mr and Mrs L thrived on the happiness and humour Coral brought into their home.
“Coral was a ray of sunshine; her level of care and attention was faultless and always with great humour and cheer”
