as you all know i am a care support worker and before my maternity leave i worked for a nursing agency in cardiff. for the last 2 years with the agency i have been a regular at a leonard cheshire home in radyr (danybryn) and have worked with residents with all sorts of dissabilities and all ages, the yougest there when i started was 25 but sadly he passed away.
leonard cheshire homes are by far the best care homes i have worked in, the staff are so friendly and the residents are well looked after, they are free to come and go as they please, they also have mini-busses and drivers in each home to be able to take the residents wherever they want to go.
i was actually watching tv earlier on and saw the advert for leonard cheshire with the creature comforts characters and the voice of the tortoise sounded very famillier to me, he sounded like my most favourite resident in danybryn so i thought i'd look it up and i found the site aboutt he advert and then found out that 2 other residents that i got close to also had parts in these adverts.
take a look at the site, i looked after brian the bull terrier (aka kevin), peg the hedgehog (aka sheila) and tim the tortoise (aka ian).
make sure you watch the adverts on the site and check out behind the characters to read everyones stories. these 3 people are fantastic people and have plenty to say about their disabillities.
