PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! After a year without physical contact this mother and daughter were able to hold hands once again. Beth Oliver and her mum Claire Foster were smiling from ear to ear after being able to be back together without a screen keeping them apart. Aged 18 Beth's life was shattered after a car crash left her severely brain damaged in 2015. But despite being given just a 3% chance of survival she defied the odds to pull through. As a result of her injuries she struggles to communicate and is wheelchair dependant. Beth is now a resident in St Cuthbert’s Care, Newcastle, the 24-year-old, has been able to see her mum through window visits and in a Covid-safe visiting pod during lockdown. Almost one year on from their last face-to-face visit, Beth said that it was “amazing” to be able to finally hold her mum’s hand once again.

Claire, who will care full time for Beth, added: “I don't know how we got through this year. The thought of Beth coming home has helped me to keep going. “When she had her accident they said she would have no quality of life. But what she is doing now is amazing; she still has her personality, she still has Beth in her. “I'm hoping she gets home, her speech will come on more as I will talk to her and we are getting eye gaze technology to make communication easier. “It has taken so long to get her home back where she belongs. I do think she will come along better knowing she is back home. I just want us to get back to normal.” And St Cuthbert’s Care was delighted to be part of Claire and Beth’s special moment. Gareth Bainbridge, St Cuthbert's Care manager, said: “What a moment. Almost exactly a year on from their last face-to-face visit, Beth was able to hold hands with her mother once again. “We have supported socially-distanced visits and a COVID safe visitor pod for some time now, but there’s nothing quite like that human touch from those you love the most. “Once again, I am so proud of everything my team does and the sacrifices that residents and their families have made to work together in keeping everyone safe. We have certainly done our bit over the past year. “Moments like this remind us all why we do it. It makes it all worthwhile. I am so happy for Beth and Claire and I am so grateful I was able to share such a personal moment.” Read More Related Articles North Shields care home appeal for 100 cards for resident's 100th birthday goes global Read More Related Articles Five-year-old who battled brain tumour in lockdown among pupils who received medals on school return
