With care home visiting gradually opening up, some of our volunteers have been able to start going back to see residents.
But what does it feel like to go back as a volunteer after not being able to visit for 14 months? And how have things changed since the pre-COVID days?
Jude, who has been visiting residents at her local care home since 2017, was one of our first volunteers to resume visits. Tina, our Founding Director, caught up with Jude to hear about her first visit back and Jude's reflections on how someone might prepare themselves to go back into visiting.
