"I've been keeping our residents safe" - care worker Lisa Griffiths

28 August 2020

We recently invited a selection of key workers to Carrow Road to help launch our 2020-21 away kit, and spoke to them about how they've supported the local community over the COVID-19 pandemic.

Lisa Griffiths is a care worker at Broadacres residential home, and has been presented with new challenges when looking after residents during the pandemic.

canaries.co.uk: How have you been supporting the community over the pandemic?

LG: As a carer, which is classed as a key worker role, I've been going in every day wearing PPE and keeping our residents safe.

canaries.co.uk: Has it been challenging? How have the residents responded to the situation?

LG: They've responded really well. The main thing for them was not being able to see their loved ones because obviously they haven't been coming into the residential home to see them, so that's been tough on them.

Sometimes we'd go out on trips, so not being able to do that has been hard for them as well.

canaries.co.uk: Is part of your job to just try to help keep spirits up among the residents?

LG: Yeah, definitely, and give them all the reassurance and care they need.

canaries.co.uk: What was your reaction to being invited to Carrow Road for our away kit launch?

LG: A little bit nervous! But I wanted to come and represent where we work and all the good things we've done during the pandemic.

canaries.co.uk: As a Norwich fan, are you looking forward to next season?

LG: I've been to a few games and I really liked the atmosphere. Hopefully, they'll do really well, so fingers crossed. We'll be behind them.
