28 year old with CP sensory loss doesn’t understand isolation and bored
I have a 28 year old daughter who is living in a care home 15 mins away from me, I see her regularly, she is quadriplegic with CP and profoundly deaf and of course is now in lock down for 12 weeks , I am not allowed to visit or take her out. She likes to be active and loves to be out and about. She doesn’t understand why she has been stuck indoors for 7 days and it’s not possible to explain to her why this is happening. I face time her with the help of a carer and yesterday she looked so fed up and bored. The carers are finding it hard to entertain her after exhausting every activity she enjoys and this is only week 1. I worry for her mental health I think all this will have a profound effect on her. I just wondered if anybody else is in a similar situation ?
