What people say about us

“On first meeting Emily, her commitment and passion to enable people to achieve to the best of their ability is evident. She has a fun, calm, patient, non-judgmental manner and very quickly built a positive relationship with my son Chris. Emily uses a person-centered approach, tailored to the individual, and this has been hugely beneficial in engaging Chris with the activities. He has gained many skills which he was unable to gain in other settings. Most importantly, Chris has had fun and has gained a sense of achievement.” Kim

“Both my parents have dementia.  They have always had a passion for their garden and Emily enabled them to continue to feel involved in its maintenance and care. Emily is passionate, hardworking, easy to talk to, funny and very competent in what she does. She immediately struck up a rapport with both of them.  Mum had cared for Dad for a number of years, and then in the last couple of years sadly developed dementia herself.  She was experiencing acute isolation during the covid pandemic, when Emily started to provide therapeutic gardening sessions. Emily would involve Mum in planning what needed to be done in the garden and Mum would get involved in tasks such as deadheading plants, potting up tubs and weeding.  Apart from working hard and making the garden look lovely,  Emily provided a sense of worth for my Mum and distraction, interest and companionship for both of my parents through a really difficult time.  It would be brilliant if more people could have access to the wonderful therapeutic garden sessions that Emily provides. ” Claire
