What makes a house a home?
A house is made of bricks and beams. A home is made of hopes and dreams.
James and Ciaran are getting ready for the day. James dreams while listening to Shania Twain. She’s one of his favourite singers and he loves to talk about the Shania concert he and his family attended.
James is so cheeky and fun. He can also be really serious. He is the unofficial boss of this place. He’s a very cheeky monkey (Alex, Support Worker)
Ciaran makes sure the house stays neat and tidy. Everything must be put back in its rightful place. He loves to relax on his swing in the morning sun.
Today, James and Ciaran are supported by Angie and Lovena.
Angie started with Rise in February 2016 and is passionate about supporting the lads.
I enjoy having conversations and building relationships with the clients. Me and James will sit for hours and have conversations about stuff.
Lovena also joined Rise in 2016.
Two of my best mates work here, in this house. It’s the people. You can’t do this job without liking people.
This morning she is listening to Ciaran explain some of his favourite food on his IPad.
