Well that was a lovely session of Chair Chi at one of my regular aged care centres today.
Not only was the session great fun but on the way out the Diversional Therapist called me over and wanted to tell me something.
She told me that yesterday she was at her regular Diversional Therapist meeting, which covers five aged care centres; they discuss and evaluate the various activities they run for the residents. She said my Chair Chi session was in the top three activities, actually it’s number one at her centre. The residents really look forward to my sessions.
She recommended my Chair Chi to the other aged care centres and it looks like I may get a few calls for further bookings. I starting to get referalls and I’m virtually booked out for the remainder of the year which is not a bad problem to have.
At another aged care centre last week, a hairdresser who looks after the residents, told me after my session she was impressed with the way I run the session and said she would refer me on to another centre she works at.
It’s good to get this sort of feedback because;
- it feeds my ego (yes, I do have one)
- it’s good for business
- and most important it feels very satisfying that in some small way I am making a difference
Ah, I can now sit back in my Chair and enjoy all the good Chi that’s come my way.
But not for too long – I have another four sessions in the next two days!
