PUBLIC INFORMATION PAGES FROM CAMDEN COUNCIL

Christine (pictured), who lives in sheltered housing run by Camden Council in Bloomsbury, shares what life has been like during the pandemic: “I have lost two people to COVID-19. I’ve tried to live a normal life and come to terms with what has happened, but I’m very sad for everyone.

“I had a lot of offers of help from neighbours, but I thought it was better for me to keep doing things for myself. My grandchildren stood outside my flat and we talked from a distance. Now I’m back working every Sunday at the Foundling Museum, which is open again.

“In our sheltered scheme we have the best management. They are kind and are here if we need anything, and they check on us three to four times a week. We all work together and it’s exactly what I want: I care for you, you care for me.”
