Coping with decreased mobility

In Aspire Case Studies by Simon

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.
