Life Stories for carers

P1040506June  saw my first Life Stories session for patients and carers. It was a superb opportunity to share stories, some of which had been heard before, others were brand new.  I didn’t really need my  post-it ” how do you feel? test” administered before and after the session to know that participation in a Life Stories Workshop enhances feelings of well being and happiness, the participants were glowing- and getting them to leave the room once our slot was up, was very difficult. From my perspective, I was honoured to be invited in to listen to another set of fascinating tales; the heady 60s, life in Japan and what it really felt like to be a “ten bob Pom”
