I know many people will probably be relieved that it’s August and love the month, but I really don’t Ike it at all……I use to love the change in routine but no more…..
It feels like people are in the wrong places at the wrong time. The structure and routine disappears. Even familiar voices on the radio are replaced as DJ’s take a holiday. The familiar site of school children walking down the street is replaced by silence or a solitary walker.
It’s confusing and disorientating. I have to think harder as to the time of day or even the day of the week as routine happenings disappear for the summer.
I’m never one to wish the time away but ……..Roll on September when normality will resume…..
Maybe people in Care Home feel that way when staff change daily ……
