Mums in Business- The Frailty Nurse

The Frailty Nurse.

Frailty Nurse- Instagram

I’m a Mum of 2 girls aged 3 & 5, a wife and a dog owner!!

Prior to children I worked full time as a Community Matron for the NHS preventing ageing patients being admitted into hospital. 

When my second little one arrived I decided to try and get a better work life balance so launched my own business to allow me the flexibility to fit in around them while still keeping my independence and registration……….Frailty Nurse Consultants was launched.

It’s main aim to to support families with their ageing parents by offering advice, support and guidance to keep our ageing relatives safe at home.

I am passionate about the care of our older generation. Our population is ageing, we are living longer with more complex needs and long term conditions at home.

Navigating through all the options out there is complex, time consuming and confusing. This is where my business is here to help.

We offer support to you and your ageing parents, to help plan and navigate the health and social care system taking pressure off you all and put steps in place to keep them ticking along nicely. 

 We do this by completing an assessment at your parents home where all their needs and issues can discussed in a friendly and professional manor.
We can also help to save money by exploring options and benefits available.

We also offer a Frailty visiting service if you do not live near your ageing parents and would like peace of mind they are still managing ok, we report back any concerns and work as a team to keep them safe.

Finding someone to trust and who can help is the key, we are caring and compassionate and champion the needs of our elderly clients.

New Boots- review of Colourful Soles in Lutterworthaa

On Tuesday this week we had our first visit to Colourful Soles in Lutterworth,  wonderful new independent shoe shop for children. We were kindly invited to have Dorothea fitted and gifted a new pair of boots in return for an honest review.

First impression of the shop were fab- the outdoor signage and window display and neat, tidy and cute! (as any kids shop should be). The lovely Tracy welcomed us and gave Dorothea time to look around and settle down playing before we discussed shoes and boots. Tracy was great with Dorothea, obviously has a natural affinity with kids and made measuring a 2 year olds feet look easy (which I’m sure isn’t the case).

The shop is beautifully decorated and themed; colourful, without the need for sunglasses. Nicely displayed footwear; so you can see clearly what’s available without being overwhelmed by the amount. The range of brands, colours and designs is fab; with something to suit all tastes- there’s sparkles and bows if you want them but also the tan, navy and black for a more classic look. The shop stocks shoes, boots wellies and school shoes too!

 

The service was brilliant, Tracy spent an hour with us; measuring Dorothea and patiently trying on 7 different pairs of boots and ensuring their fit. Dorothea was shy at first, but luckily the store has a great supply of toddler friendly toys, so we could coax her around the floor with toys. Dorothea especially loved showing us her sprints to the front of the store, to ‘ping’ the bouncy animals in the window and run back again.

 

We finally settled on some rosy bronze metallic ankle boots from Ecco (gifted) and also the lovely mustard ones again Ecco brand. I’m very tempted to return and get the beautiful navy boots with sparkly shooting star.

 

Pricewise, Colourful Soles is as expected for great quality recognised brands- the boots we tried on ranged from £48-52. The shop also has a loyalty card, so you can gain a discount the more you purchase. All of us (Nanna came too), enjoyed the Colourful Soles experience and will certainly be returning.
