My son is cared for at the Horizon Day Centre. He is blind and has learning difficulties and because of this he likes to spend most of the time alone or one to one with a member of staff.
The resource centre has been fantastic with him. They help him to do day to day activities like eat meals, go to the toilet and listen to music.
He's now in his 30s and has been going to the day centre since he was 16 years old. He's very settled there, and he feels secure.
I spent a lot of time with Jane Danforth who has helped me so much. She's been brilliant. She's helped me get involved with the trust and I've now become a member of the trust which means I keep up to date with what"s happening. I find that really useful, and I'm proud to be involved with the trust and the decisions that are made.
I've heard rumblings that the day centre may have to change what it does or may no longer exist. That would be a real shame. The staff have been brilliant with my son and if things had to change now it would upset his routine and might distress him. I hope this doesn't happen.
