Living with Practical Realities, 1978: Courtesy the Artist © Stephen Willats

Posted Mar 07 2014 2:25pm
Within Intermediate Support, Older Adults we are short-staffed at present. I was asked to work this Saturday - tomorrow - but was able to take Wednesday off. This helpfully coincided with a half-day event in Liverpool - Developing (research) proposals for Research for Patient Benefit ( RfPB ).

In the afternoon I took two hours (with reading to do also) at the Tate, this includedThe exhibition included the three photographs displayed below by Stephen Willats . They are usually presented side-by-side. Since the 1970s and 80s the photographs made me wonder about social policy, social care, change and progress.

I was also prompted to recall a visit to a pensioner's club with my nan (maternal grandmother as we called her) in Liverpool in 1969-70.
