Our Old People Support Stories
I was supported to go on a long drive to Aberdeen where I had two pieces of art work on display at the Dementia Resource Centre.
Hi my name is Peter, I came to the St. Leonards service in June 2018 after being discharged from hospital suffering from an acquired brain injury.
Our Staff Stories
The Sound of Silence
When I decided to start my adventure as a support worker, I was in a transition period of my life, and didn't know what I was looking for. I have always been inclined to help others even when I had tons of things to do, and with life being so frenetic it's not always possible to have the energy to translate this attitude into practical acts.
Working with people is something that I have always enjoyed and have worked across different services in my 15 years in social care.
