Chris's amazing art

At LOROS we work hard to ensure our care helps people feel sure of who they are, their likes and dislikes, and how they want to be cared for. Chris, 55, is on our Inpatient Ward and likes drawing pictures. He’s brilliant at it, and as he lies in his bed, it gives him a lot of enjoyment. His skills are even more amazing as he’s only been doing it for a couple of years.

Emma's story

"Considering she couldn't talk anymore, the nurses were still able to have a chat with her about her wishes, her family, her childhood and her favourite hobby which was gardening. It didn't matter that it took her a while to write down what she wanted to say, everyone gave her the time to be able to do this."
