Respite for Becky and a New Friend for Bert
Becky had cared for her dad, Bert, for around a year when she contacted BelleVie to enquire about respite care. Her new job meant she was working longer hours and she had little time to do anything else but work and care for her dad.
After meeting Bert and Becky and finding out what was important to them, we tailored their care package to be an evening visit five nights a week to prepare Bert’s tea and to offer Bert some companionship during the Winter evenings.
This allowed Becky some much needed time to relax with her young daughter after work, and Bert loved having the company of his male Wellbeing Support Worker, Ian. Ian and Bert found a common interest in cars and often talked about the models featured on the latest episode of Top Gear.
