Heidi attends Daylight for one day a week at Walnut Close. She has moderate learning disabilities and at 63 is one of our oldest members. Throughout her early visits, she was very quiet and would sit and watch the activities, preferring not to join in. Project staff liaised with her Supported Living carers to help her settle in, and as she did not get involved in the activities we were concerned that she may not be happy attending the project or getting much from it. However, her support staff assured us that she would often sit and observe and that when she went home she talked enthusiastically about the activities she did at Daylight. Although she is still quiet and doesn’t speak very much she will willingly join in activities and seems settled, continuing to tell her carers how much she enjoys coming.
