Two carers who took to the kitchen to help cook for residents have produced a fun video celebrating their time as temporary chefs.

Senior Carer Danielle Paterson and Carer David Cook (yes, his actual name) stepped in while Balhousie Brookfield in Carnoustie was looking for a new chef. The pair took to TikTok to mark the occasion.

Their cooking stints were a hit and, says Home Manager Laurie Easom, prove what a tight team exists at the home. “I’m just incredibly grateful to Danielle and David. They stepped up to the plate – literally – to help when we were in a bind. It’s been a really hard 18 months for everyone in the care home sector, with the ‘pingdemic’ affecting us as. Everyone has had to muck in and support each other. I’m proud of the whole Brookfield team.”
