“Care Homes Not Designed For Teens”

June 26, 2020

Sally’s 19-year-old daughter, Katie, has a life-limiting disease and had to move into a care home at the end of her first year of university, to shield from coronavirus.

Sally, who lives in Harrogate, told BBC Radio 5 Live Breakfast that she wants to see the rules around care homes changed so that she can hug her daughter again.

Guidance on shielding is being kept under review. People shielding in England and Northern Ireland can spend time outdoors, as long as they continue to follow social distancing rules.

Those shielding in Scotland and Wales can exercise outdoors, either on their own, with their family or with people from another household.
