Care home builds booth for visitors
Residents and their family and friends can now communicate safely.
Restrictions have been placed on many care homes during this pandemic and a lot of residents and their families and friends have been missing out on visits and social contact. Employees at Avalon, a specialist residential home specifically for adults with learning disabilities, epilepsy and dysphagia in Essex, decided to do something about it.
Caretaker Josh has been building and decorating a booth for visitors and staff have purchased a monitor so customers and their family and friends can now talk to each other.
The new booth has been welcomed. Sue Allison, Head of Service (Disabilities) at Peabody says "We are so very grateful for the support in making this happen and making such a difference to people's lives".
