Hi, I'm the creator of Whose Shoes? - a board game that helps people to "walk in the shoes" of others. It gets people talking about what is good and bad in health and social care and how things can be improved. People who use services and carers say it gives them a voice. They can join in as "equals" with professionals; everyone gets a say. This video shows the game in action.
I run Whose Shoes? workshops all over the
. One of the most memorable ones was in UK , as part of the Social Care Ideas Factory (SCIF) Festival of Ideas for personalisation. Sadly it was long before I knew about Tommy and his Mum. Glasgow
Tommy and I share a passion for stories On my Whose Shoes? blog I am asking lots of different people to write about dementia and what it means to them. I am coming across many inspirational people, passionate about improving lives. One of these, of course, is "Tommy on Tour" who wrote this blogpost for the series.
I am now working on an electronic version of Whose Shoes?, and developing some new content specific to dementia.
