Dealing with Lockdown: Supported People's Perspectives
Daniel Page, Supported in Fife Area Services
My name is Daniel and I get support from Scottish Autism. I get staff 24/7 and I can do things independently. When staff told me about Coronavirus I was not happy as I could not get out to see friends or visit shops. It was hard staying in and finding things to keep me occupied. My mum phoned to ask if I would like to stay with her for a while until this Coronavirus is over with. I said that I would like to stay with family. In my spare time all I really do is use my laptop and DVDs. To keep safe I wear gloves going to the local shops, and always wash my hands at home. I keep in touch with my friends and staff: I use the telephone and WhatsApp on my laptop so I can still see people. I am concerned how long Coronavirus will go on, until it is completely over with, so I can see all my friends.
