I was visiting a very ancient relative in her care home the other day. Monday had seemed a good choice, I had no other bookings and the only other regular visit wasn’t due until Thursday. So off I toddled. Big mistake. Once I’d actually got parked and through the reception area, I found said relative in a real state of anxiety – there had been a major problem with the extractor fans in the kitchen, so the catering team had been moved to the old kitchen just a few doors from my relative. We had heavy duty cleaning machinery trying to break up the problem in the out pipes from the sinks and the extractor fans needed servicing to comply with the current standards book. It was fascinating watching these activities being done as quickly and carefully as possible So as to not disturb or alarm the residents. A thankless task!
