They said she was short of bedsocks so I bought her some yesterday and left them on her bed. When visiting today I noticed she didn't have any socks on and her feet were cold. So I mentioned it to the manager. She said yes I know one of the care staff is with her now who didn't know whether to put them on her or not.
So I went back to her room and I mentioned it to the carer. She said - and I kid you not
'Yes I saw them there but didn't know if you wanted me to put them on her or not' and 'We welcome and need relatives input' She also pointed out that they were new!
So I said 'Yes but surely you don't need our input to put socks on her if her feet are cold'? 'Please make sure she has socks on at all times - this is why I bought them!' As to them being new 'Do you want someone to wear them in first'?
Is it me?
