Susan, Sow & Grow co-worker carer:
We heard from social services about the Sow & Grow, and wanted to get mum socialising with her age group.
It’s helped her confidence to build relationships with other people, participating in group activities being more mobile, happier mood and feeling useful. She has definitely become more creative. She now has a positive outlook and is excited for the days she was in the group. It has made her more willing to do things.
As a carer I can say that it’s helped me to understand her needs more and seeing others in the same position has given me more ideas on how to manage situations. Also, the support and understanding is so great from the team that it has given my confidence a great boost. I believe if the patient is happy, carer is happier and courses like Sow & Grow should be available to the people in need of it.
