When Wessex Care Were Interviewed by the BBC During the Coronavirus Pandemic
We are very pleased to bring you the recording from our BBC Wiltshire Radio interview back in July which was recorded just as the lock down restrictions were being eased. The lock down period has been a very challenging time for residents, staff and all the families of residents and staff at Wessex Care, due to the strict measures in place to prevent the spread of Covid-19 and to protect some of the most vulnerable members of our society.
The interview features a snippet of one of our Zoom music classes and some heart warming interviews from residents that explain how they have been staying positive and keeping in touch with their families via video call during the difficult pandemic conditions.
We owe a special thanks to Alive for the activities they provide for our homes and centres and to our Head of Welfare and Engagement Malcolm Burgin and the rest of our staff for all the hard work and support they have shown throughout 2020 to keep our residents and community customers not just healthy, but happy. Well done to Sophie for volunteering to be interviewed and who spoke very confidently through this BBC recording!
