St. Michael’s House provides services for both children and adults with disabilities in the greater Dublin area and Navan, Co. Meath. Moyle day service, based in Glasnevin, Dublin 11, caters for the needs of 44 adults with disabilities, many of whom have experienced the loss of friends over the last number of years.
Social Care Worker, Lynn Leggett, and mosaic artist, Aidan Byrne, guided service-users in creating mosaics to adorn the centre’s memorial garden in their memory. The process of creating these artistic pieces proved extremely therapeutic and enjoyable for everyone.
As Lynn told us:
“We had a fantastic day. The Irish Hospice Foundation’s preparatory workshop for staff on bereavement facilitated conversations with our service-users around grief while making the mosaics. This was an integral part of the project and made the day an incredibly meaningful and worthwhile experience.”
The finished mosaics have now been installed in the memorial garden. A commemoration service for service-users, staff, family, and friends to remember and celebrate lost loved ones will be held there over the summer.
