12/05/16 A Random Act of Kindness.
Just thought we'd share the random act of kindness we received today...
We are currently working with a group of elderly people suffering from dementia. One of the men used to enjoy painting but has lost confidence due to issues with depth perception. We thought it might help to elevate his canvas, so we discovered this item on eBay that looked ideal. It was for local collection only, but the seller kindly agreed to post it to us in time for our next session with the gentleman. Enclosed was a bag of acrylic paints and a beautiful card sending his best wishes and explaining that he hoped they would be of use to the chap we are working with. How kind!
