Beth Britton, who works with our Best Practice Health Team, writes about how the team at The Cherries created a life story book for Barry with the support of his family
Life story work is something we’ve championed within MacIntyre for many years. I love the stories of people’s lives, and the power they have to transform the way we provide support.
As the MacIntyre DNA says, our aim is that ‘Everyone has a voice and is listened to’. Life story work is one way we can support a person to be heard and understood, especially if an individual struggles to communicate with us or has a cognitive impairment like dementia.
