This is some feedback that was recieved from a patient on Ruby Ward within The National High Secure Healthservice for Women at Rampton Hospital (Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust) regarding the Day Care Services Therapeutic Involvement Workers.
"I was asked a couple of weeks ago if I'd like to paint the pool/games room in the Diamond Resource Centre, I jumped at the chance because I enjoy patient, it gives me a sense of achievement especially when it is finished and you can stand back and say I did that! thats when the achievement comes in. Also there's a purpose because of how it all looks at the end.
Its therapeutic and I guess mindfulness comes into it because of the amount of concentration that's needed. I found it very relaxing and meaningful and you feel like you've done some good hard work. So then, when today another opportunity came up to paint the Salon I was well happy!
It really makes me happy and gives me a feel good factor that also although we are detained in a High Secure Hospital we can still do everyday life skills like painting. So thank you for giving me the opportunity to do thin gs I like and thoroughly enjoy.
