Born in Riga, Latvia, to Lithuanian parents, my name is Aldona Grupas. I lived in Klaipeda, for most of my life before coming to the UK in 2005. Relocating to Wolverhampton I started a helpline for the Lithuanian community there, chairing the enterprise for 10 years. I am the author of a book charting the history of the Lithuanian community in the West Midlands since the Second World War. I am a nurse. I work in a nursing home. I like my work.This my second book, which is called “Nurse, Give Me a Pill for Death...”, is about what I had to do to survive in an environment saturated with the hopeless and the dying. Yes, I am one of those people who help the very sick, who try to facilitate ease their existence, and who many times held the hands of the ones who had to learn to accept the sunset of their lives.Maybe reading my books will cause you to reminisce? Maybe you will remember relatives from years ago who have been long lost in other countries? Maybe you would like to tell me something? Your story? I like to hear stories because I find new ideas for new projects. I am open to network. Let's communicate. I'm always waiting for you.
