Health & Social Care Visit to Simpson Day Service
On Friday 3 November, the Year 12 Health and Social Care Extended Diploma Students visited Simpson Day Service where they were taken on a tour of the facility and met the wonderful staff who spoke about all the services they provide for older people in the community. The centre primarily supports people living with Dementia and their families. While the students were there, they interacted with the service users and took part in meaningful activities. The students enjoyed chatting to service users and staff while participating in arts and crafts and a quiz where they joined the service users in guessing the ending of some old sayings/phrases. They “put their best foot forward” and even had a go on the driving simulator.
The Year 12 students did the school proud and displayed excellent communication and interpersonal skills as well as confidence and kindness.
I would like to say a huge thank you to Nancy Adam, the Operational Manager Older People’s Day Services, for hosting us and I would like to thank the staff at Simpson day Service for making us feel so welcome.
