A reflection activity with people we support
MacIntyre’s Dying to Talk Project Lead, Rachel Furniss, shares her experiences of supporting three people to reflect on those who have died during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Reflection is a really important skill that we practice as staff members, but not something I’ve routinely encouraged the people we support to do.
This year we wanted to help some of the people we support to participate in the 23 March National Day of Reflection, remembering lives lost during the COVID-19 pandemic. Through my dual roles in the Dying to Talk Project and as a Learning Support Worker at MacIntyre’s Queen’s Park Lifelong Learning Service, I’ve worked with Sharon, John and Steven to do this.
This is the story of our time together reflecting, remembering and celebrating the people who Sharon, John and Steven have loved and lost during the last two years.
