Getting up early in the morning we can't wait to enjoy our biscuits with tea!
Coming on shift in the morning you will see me sitting in my chair eating biscuits, very conscious of sounds to see if any staff that have arrived for the day. My room is my tidy space with my toys and I do not like sharing my toys. Staff decided to make time to enable me to take this into a more sociable space and join the other residents in the communal area. It was a small initiative but the outcomes were big! Now i sit in the lounge with my toys and interact with staff and other residents using my toys to communicate. My staff team are keeping up the work to enable all residents to understand more positive interactions and for me to communicate with happy words.
