Nadine Stone shares a day in her life as a CLA Support Worker….
My morning started by meeting Brendan and his mum at ASHS carpark at 8.30. We then drove out to the Princess Royal Sailing Club in Little Grove. We had time for a drink and chat and then joined friends for a sail at our weekly Sailability session.[read more=”Read More” less=”Read Less”]
Brendan alternates weeks on a yacht named Gypsy Doctor, skippered by Tony or on the new power boat. Having a hoist on the jetty is a great help. We sailed around the harbour looking at various things and had much fun scaring pigeons off the old whale chaser!
After our sail, we headed back into town to use the ALAC facilities to freshen up for the afternoon. We then chose a spot for lunch at the park.
After demolishing our packed lunches (sea air certainly gives you an appetite!) we headed off to the Stirling Club to meet friends for a couple of games of darts and pool and play some songs on the jukebox. Brendan chatted happily with the ‘regulars’ – community members enjoying a social drink at the club.
Tired after all that socialising, we headed back to the school to meet Brendan’s mum for his lift home. We had a great day together – hope Brendan had as much fun as I did!
