Patient

A little peace of mind

"While playing cards with my elderly Grandad a healthcare assistant came along with his lunch and introduced himself 'Hello Eugene, my name is Sean'.
He was pleasant and patient, helped Grandad with his lunch, ensured he was comfortable, all while trying to figure out what we were playing.
Grandad showed him the ropes and Sean would take time out of his busy day to have a game of cards with Grandad, – which broke up the day for him.
It was also a little peace of mind for family members as we knew Grandad would have some interaction during the day and would make the day go a little quicker for him".
