Helping Mary to live with arthritis
Mary suffers from arthritic hands. She has been finding many everyday
tasks increasingly difficult much to her annoyance. Things like sewing
buttons back onto blouses and sometimes cooking.
She contacted Cura Care following a recommendation from a friend who has
used us. Mary asked for someone to come round to do her housework,
occasionally cook her a meal and keep her company. However, she was
adamant that she wanted the same carer continuously. Mary had
previously used a different home care agency that alternated carers
regularly and often sent her people who she had communication
difficulties with. We delved deeper into the type of carer she wanted
and did not want and made sure we assigned someone that met her
Mary has formed a good bond with Fiona, her carer, and says she is glad
she switched to Cura Care on the grounds that we listened to what she
wanted and made sure we delivered it.
