It’s Learning Disability Awareness Week! A blog by Lloyd Page
Thank you for letting me write this blog. It’s been a very long and difficult time for everyone. We never have heard of covid eighteen months ago. I submitted my story to ‘Peter and friends talk about covid-19: for people with learning disabilities and autistic people’. It was a lovely project to be involved with and to read stories from people with learning disabilities from all over the world.
I’ve have known Jim Blair for a very long time and have delivered training with him. We are also applying for a Care Talks Award. Jim is a superb nurse and a very kind human being. I am also a Green Light Champion for Norfolk and Suffolk. Sue Bridges is a great nurse and included me in this wonderful project.
Our work life has changed so much. I’ve been working from home for over a year and have learnt so many skills. I’m now an expert at using Zoom and MSteams! I’ve also enjoyed the virtual music group at Lewisham Speaking Up! Also I have been working on the hospital passports and reasonable adjustments, which I can see it making a difference to peoples lives.
My mum Mrs Leah Page sadly passed away this year. I really miss her. My brother Raymond and his wife Gill are very caring and make sure I’m ok. I would like to dedicate this blog to my lovely mum.
I loved watching the match on Sunday! You did us proud! Come on England!
