"Life to Live Event"
Posted by Lisin5 (as ),
Today the involvement team held an event for the Mental Health Services for Older Persons (MHSOP) called "Life to Live", at Ashfield Community Hospital. Many organisations came and gladly shared infomation about their services, Bronte, Shelley and Kingsley Ward, Lawrence Day Unit, Mind, Jigsaw, PALs and Dementia Outreach.
There were different stalls with leaflets, photos and staff availiable to question about their service.
The activities co-ordinators Jane Smith and Jane Kirk from Bronte and Shelley ward made a tree from cloth, the leaves were attached during the day with comments on from visitors on the day. Some of the comments made were, "To bring a smile to someones face makes it all worth while", "Please listen to our older people" and "I feel proud to be involved in patient care".
It was nice to see so many health professionals that are full of enthusiasm about their services and want to share there infomation and experiance with patients, carers, relatives and staff and to hear all the positive feedback about MHSOP.
