George has dementia, has never lived alone, and has always had someone looking after his nutritional needs. He now lives with his daughter and was distraught that he’d forgotten how to make a cup of tea.
“Dad really enjoys the company at Millicent’s, he speaks highly of all the staff and is so proud that he can now make his friends a cup of tea.” Diane, George’s daughter.
George is a real gentleman who has been attending ECL Clacton (Millicent’s) for several years, he loves a chat and is a very talented artist.
When George’s keyworker at Millicent’s asked him whether he’d like to become more independent with making his drinks, George readily agreed.
George was shown how to use the Day Services ‘one cup’ machine so that he could safely make himself a cup of tea. He was so proud when he made his first cup of tea, and though to most it seems a simple thing, to George, it felt like he had climbed a mountain!
George now enjoys making drinks for his friends at Millicent's and it has made him more sociable.
