Five Minutes with… Eric
Want to know us better?
We’re kicking off 2020 by telling you what makes us tick.
This week we’re spending five minutes with our Acting Dementia Day Centre Coordinator Eric Scott. Take it away, Eric.
1. What’s your role at South Eastern Community Connect?
I was appointed Recreation Officer at The Cottage Dementia Program in July 2018, and for the last three months have been acting in the Coordinator role.
2. What are three things you love about your current job?
- Spending time with clients
- Enjoying the conversation
- Listening to music
- Playing games
- And of course, sharing a few jokes.
3. What was your first-ever job?
In the summer after leaving school, I worked in a large dry cleaning business.
They had me putting plastic covers over the clothes on hangers.
After that, I got a ”real job” in the office of one of the largest steel companies in the UK.
4. What was your favourite TV show growing up?
I’d watch any cowboy show – and there were lots of them.
5. Which store would you max out your credit card in if money was no object?
6. What was your favourite toy as a kid?
A toy truck with a load of plastic pipes that could be taken off and joined together. Fun!
7. What was your childhood nickname?
Ricky. But only my brother calls me that these days.
8. Do you have any phobias?
I’m not bothered by spiders, snakes or cockroaches…
But I HATE being late.
9. What are three things still left on your bucket list?
I’d love to:
- Travel to the southern states of the US to indulge my passion for country music and blues
- Return to Florence
- And have a pied-a-terre (unit) in Paris.
Thank you Eric!
