The Oaks Residential Care Home
Welsh: Dydd Llun a Dydd Mawrth 22/23 Ebrill 2019
02:10hrs, Monday 22nd April: The radiators in the hallway outside the door started rattling and banging away again. Showered and shaved. Dried off the Ankle Pad ready for fitting my sweet carer later on.
05:25hrs. The radiators stopped banging? Then started Clunking again. Washed and shaved. Toast for brekkers served in the room bless em. Carer fitted the ankle-pad for me. Radiator changed to a Rugger-rugger, dung-dung noise. Fitters arrived again to put the heater in order again. Noise changer to a shudder, bang, clatter tone.
No nosh taken, feeling too tired-out to bother. Medications and blood test done. Visit from
As a resident was talking to me, I asked a carer if she might fetch a newspaper for me and she obliged, bless her cotton socks.
The radiators sounded like a drummer on kettle drums, only louder.
Tuesday 23rd April 2019: Having breakers in the end room, and one of the tenants (unstable chap), shouted out aloud, they are all black women here, why? At the time he was surrounded by five or six carers who all coloured. I nipped in with “Well we’d all be in a mess without them wouldn’t we!” A lady said at the same time, “Who else would put up with you?” These comments calmed him down and shut him up.
Nosh of a sarnie and fruit was brought to the room bless em! Late bath and shave were taken. Much more took place today, and Pete called, but the mind was a little vague all around for some reason.
