On my second day at Arcare Sydenham, I had one client, Brian, approach me and ask me to come to his room. As I entered, he began pointing at his TV where he was watching a billiards competition. Thinking that he may have been feeling lonely and wanted a bit of company, I watched a bit of the competition with him.
When I looked over at him again he was trying to tell me something which I realised meant that he didn’t want me to watch tv with him, he wanted me to purchase him a billiards table.
Eight weeks later and the table arrived at Arcare Sydenham, and has been well used and loved ever since!
The Sydenham Community celebrated all things Disney last week; taking part in a dress up day. From princesses and queens to mice and villains, the beautiful costumes had everyone talking.
