"Coming to the day centre makes all the difference to me"
Posted by bruce123 (as ),
I used to go to Dirrans centre as I had a head injury but when I reached a certain age I was too old and Nanette, the manager, arranged for me to start coming to Burns day centre. Nanette visited the centre with me and got me settled in.
It’s brilliant at Burns. There are all different activities. Staff are really good and they join in all the activities with you. If you take not well they make sure you’re ok. If they need to phone an ambulance a member of staff will go with you to hospital, I’ve even seen the boss go.
They look after you at lunch, they make sure you have enough to eat and drink. I’ve got a key worker but I can talk to any of the staff, they’ll listen and try to work things out. If I’m upset there is a quiet room I can go to.
Last Friday we went to the pipe band championships in Glasgow, it was a good day and we had our lunch out. It’s things like this, the staff really can’t do enough for you.
I live myself and coming to the day centre really makes all the difference to me.
