Mr and Mrs Bird reunited after 4 months apart. Prior to lockdown Frank was visiting Joan at her care home 3 – 4 times a day. This stopped abruptly in March when Covid lockdown started, Frank was home alone and Joan in her care home with no visitors. Frank managed well until the beginning of July, when he started to feel the strain of isolation. The family decided to bring them back together at a care home nearer them. Frank moved into Merlewood at the beginning of July and Joan followed at the end of the month. After a short period of isolation at the time of arrival Frank and Joan have been reunited and able to spend time together daily.
