Kathy designs her new bedroom

Kathy has limited verbal communication, but that does not get in the way of her expressing her preferences. Team Leader, Hannah, says ‘Kathy’s face will light up with a big smile when she likes something and she will get attention by looking in the direction of her staff.’

Kathy points enthusiastically at objects around her, or at pictures she likes in magazines. Her staff began by creating a ‘mood board’ using cut-out photos which Kathy chose. Paint charts helped her choose a colour scheme and wallpaper swatches added texture.

Armed with the mood board, Kathy set off on a shopping trip to Dunelm, accompanied by her staff Hannah, Beryl and Claire. As you can see from the top photo, the trip was a great success!

Kathy loves her bright, beautiful new bedroom. Hannah, says the makeover has really helped Kathy feel better as she gets much less agitated now.
