In the latest Let Your Voice Shine vlog, Louise tells us why being part of the Keep Going…….Don’t Stop! group is important to her.
The Keep Going…….Don’t Stop! group was formed in May 2016 to work alongside the Dementia Project team. Together with the rest of the group, Louise works hard to develop Easy Read resources about topics around health, growing older and wellbeing and gives ideas about how the resources created as part of the Dementia Project can be developed to communicate the messages in a way that makes sense to as many people as possible.
Many people that know the group well have commented on the remarkable difference they have seen in each person since the group was formed; Louise in particular has become far more confident in her ideas and sharing her opinion.
Sarah Ormston, MacIntyre’s Dementia Project Manager who works alongside the Keep Going…….Don’t Stop group, said:
“The confidence of the team is their greatest achievement. The silence is now beginning to fill with voice, opinion and laughter. Staff who know them comment proudly that they are different people to the people they were last year.”
