can you tell me how you’ve found your time here?

  • I’m not sure how long I’ve been here as I don’t know what the date is. I used to get the paper (The Times) every day and do the crosswords, since I’ve been in hospital I’ve never had a paper. My father did crosswords and I used to sit on his knee when I was little, ever since then I’ve loved them that’s 95 years.
  • I’ve enjoyed being here, It’s very comfortable here, much nicer than the last place (I can’t remember where that was), I’d be quite happy to stay though I know that’s not how it works. It doesn’t feel like a hospital but there are still people here trying to get me to do exercises! I’ve never really done exercises and I’m not going to start now.
  • I’m going home next week with the therapists to see how I get on, I’m worried about being lonely at home, especially at night. I don’t really join in much here but I like the company and knowing it’s there.

Could you describe how you’ve felt during your stay here?


This place is amazing, out of this world, I never knew anywhere like this existed. I’ve got my own room and the set up is marvellous. The size of this place is good, not too big and it’s homely. The staff are very friendly, should get a medal!

How did you feel about coming to Step Down?


I didn’t get much information and the doctor said she didn’t know much but that it was a new service and it would be good for me. Now I’m here I’d definitely rather be here than hospital.

How has Step Down made a difference to you John?

Made me more RELAXED

I’ve got a freedom here that you wouldn’t get in the hospital but I’m still getting my therapy. I’m building my energy levels back up and I’m going home next week with the therapists to see how I get on. It will be a big thing going home but I’m more confident now. Everything is more rushed in hospital , whereas here you have time.
