“My name is Robert Casey.
I have Cerebral Palsy along with a few other medical issues. I have limited use in my right hand and very little use in my legs which means I am a wheelchair user. I also have a learning difficulty and short term memory loss.
I am a very sociable person and enjoy people’s company. I have a good sense of humour and also enjoy good banter.
I was introduced to Inspirative Arts by Andy who is my support worker, Andy works closely with me and helps me get involved in activities that are very stimulating and enjoyable.
For the past four months, I have attended a weekly two-hour creative wellbeing workshop. I find the wellbeing facilitator easy to get on with because she understands mine needs to ensure activities are accessible. My support workers are allowed to join me for my session and this helps me to feel at ease. I enjoy the variety of activities and working with all of the Inspirative Arts staff who join in with the session, music is my favourite.
Thursdays are the days that I look forward to as this brings me a lot of fulfilling rewards and happiness, and makes me feel that I am RobertRobert Casey
I do feel that the benefits of attending Inspirative Arts makes me come out of my shell even if it’s just for the time I spend there. I get very excited when I know I am going to the centre, and I am on a very good high when I leave the centre at the end of the session. I feel well rewarded and look forward to the following week when I return.
I do feel that it is very important for me to continue attending the Inspirative Arts, Thursdays are the days that I look forward to as this brings me a lot of fulfilling rewards and happiness, and makes me feel that I am Robert. I want to thank everybody at the Inspirative Arts for making me feel welcome and a person. I look forward to continuing our work together. Thank you. ”
