Tell us in more detail what your role entails, what challenges you currently face, and how you are finding ways to cope.
I’m aware that we are not being recognised largely as much as the NHS key workers at this challenging time but we at care homes all across UK are also fighting and doing our best to keep Covid-19 out of our care facility. 

This makes me feel sad because although we have the areas of highest risk as most of our residents are elderly and vulnerable, we get little or no support from services. We don’t get free lunches or free shopping time and we are not priority for testing and supplies.
