Arthur's* Story


Small new danshell 3 Web Size

Arthur* came to The Orchards as part of his care pathway following on from a stay in hospital. Upon Arthur’s arrival at The Orchards, the staff team worked closely with him to help improve his independent living skills. Arthur* enrolled in college and gained some qualifications, which built up his confidence to apply for voluntary and paid work. This is something that Arthur* always wanted to achieve.

Healthy lifestyles was a big part of Arthur’s* care. When Arthur* arrived at The Orchards he was a heavy smoker. With support from staff, Arthur* attended a smoke free clinic for several weeks until it helped him to give up completely.

Arthur* is now planning to move further through his care pathway to supported living. Arthur* is looking forward to living independently in his local community and plans to attend catering college, which he sees as a stepping stone to greater things.
