Enable have been very creative with support a service user who is self-isolating due to being unwell.
The team have rallied around the service-user with home cooked meals being dropped off, Facetime quizzes twice daily and also Facetime support to ensure the flat is being kept clean and tidy/house, chores are being done and everything is as it should be (as if staff were still visiting the flat on a daily basis).
Our service-user appears to be managing the situation really well and has really stuck to the self-isolation guidance – he comes down once a day to collect his evening meal from the back door.
The Team as mentioned above have been doing a lot of Facetime with him as we mentioned before and the quizzes are around the service-user’s activity of choice. A staff member played darts with him the other day (the service-user played in his home and staff played in his!) The service-users is engaging really well with this which is fantastic.
