Coping with decreased mobility

Linda has worked in both hospitals and care homes in both administrative and caring roles. She recently left her job as a Carer in a local care home due to decreased mobility which has caused her a period of depression.

Linda’s confidence and self-belief was starting to suffer greatly, she still wanted to work in a job helping people and didn’t know where to start as she felt most options were closed to her due to her physical health issues.   I then introduced her to Chrissy at Aspire to explore her skills and see what options were available.

Chrissy identified a voluntary role in another local care home, supporting residents with dementia to build memory books.  Linda is thriving in this role which incorporates her caring, administrative and research skills; she now feels able to start looking forward towards paid employment again.
