Ben's Day

Ben is a delightful young man who has been supported by Bethphage for four years.  Ben has autism and is assisted by a small team that enable him to enjoy his independence.

Before Covid-19 lockdown, he attended a day centre in Shrewsbury Monday to Friday, but due to restrictions this has been scaled down to 3 days per week.  Ben sees this as his important place of work, he loves his work and on arrival organises what he needs for the day.

Routine is important to Ben, as it is to most of us.  After tidying his food and equipment bags away, he sits down to plan his work tasks and recreation for the day.  Meticulous from the beginning of the day to the end, Ben regularly catches out staff who are still getting to know his daily routine!

After Ben prepares his tea and toast and tidies up after himself, he sets off to complete his work before we can go out.  Diary planning, photocopying, work on the computer and 15 minutes of videos, Ben is then ready to scale up mountain tops!

Walks in the park, hikes up hills, gym outings and swimming, Ben is as “Fit as a Fiddle” and challenges any support worker who’s not keeping up!  The bonus is that our small team are getting fitter by the week!

Ben is a completer and loves to start and finish with satisfaction and accomplishment.  It is important that the team understand his routine and how important his place of work is to him.  By enabling and supporting Ben, we can support his independence, and growth and at the same time he is very much socially included as he has chosen his activities.

Happy and bubbling over, Ben meets his parents full of his day’s fun and activities.

Our Vision Is of inclusive communities where all people have the opportunity to live the life, they choose.
