Lisa Curry has finally reunited with her 86-year-old mother Pat in her aged care facility. It has been one month since the centre was placed into a Covid lockdown.

On Thursday, the former Olympian, aged 59, shared a video of herself wearing full personal protective equipment (PPE) during her visit, as she thanked the staff at the facility for looking after her beloved ‘ma’.

‘Finally able to visit my mum in her aged care facility after it was in lockdown for a month. RAT, PPE, sign forms and we can see our ma,’ she captioned the footage.

Thank you SO MUCH to all the staff, and all the carers, nurses, doctors who have to wear this get up every single day!! #morepayforournurses.’

She offered the same message in her video, saying: ‘Shout out to all the nurses and doctors, or anyone who has to wear this stuff every single day – I don’t know how you do it, I can’t breathe!

‘Good on you. Thanks for looking after our elderly parents. Thanks.’

Lisa shared a sweet tribute to her mother on her 86th birthday last April, where she praised Pat as being the ‘rock’ of the family.

‘Happy 86th Birthday to our beautiful mum, ma, mama….’ she wrote. ‘The constant rock of the family… we love you mum.’
