Aaron has been a Service User of Praxis Care since 2016. Below he shares his story:
“I came to Praxis Care because I needed to have my own space, my own life and my own independence. I moved to Praxis Care in July 2016 and I was welcomed with open arms.
I enjoy being with Praxis Care, I get on with everyone and feel like part of a team. When I first came to Praxis Care I was shy and needed to be more confident, but I have built great relationships with the staff and other service users.
Being with Praxis Care I get to do the things I want to do and there are plenty of activities. I attend a Praxis Care Day Service and go swimming once a week. I also go to the gym on a Tuesday and do sports on a Wednesday. The staff at the Praxis Care Day Service have also helped me do my Essential Skills course and will hopefully get a certificate for completing it.
I think the Praxis Care staff encourage you to be more independent – I can walk to the shop on my own or with another service user. The staff will also help you do the things you want to do and support you to do them on your own.
My aim for the future is to be able to live on my own and I would like to stay with Praxis Care for as long as possible. I hope to continue to improve myself so that I am the best that I can be, and I would also like to learn to drive one day.”
