A commitment to care

We recently had a disabled client who required hoisting between his bed and chair but our carers discovered an infestation of bed bugs in his chair. Rather than refuse to provide care for this gentleman we discussed the situation with the local authority who was funding his care and agreed that we use disposable overalls for the carers to wear so that they didn’t transfer the infestation to their other clients (or their own families). The Local Authority has also arranged temporary accommodation for this man so that the property can be properly fumigated before he moves back in to his own home.
