I have supported disabled people young and old since 1985 in all kinds of settings and in all kinds of roles. Within this work, I have supported people with their day to day life skills including personal care and support with their feeding and mobility whenever needed. I have gained some specific work experience with the elderly during my training as an activity organiser and whilst working in homes for the elderly and particularly enjoyed making time to try to keep them involved in daily tasks in order to respect their worth. I have been lucky to have been a companion for a very special lady for a year and a half and I loved spending time with her and did support her and her family in any way I could. For me it is all about building personal relationships and ensuring people have a good quality of life with respect and dignity for me. Sadly she passed away. Since then I have been supporting an other lady and a real gentleman. From a personal experience, my mother had dementia and I am very aware of what difference good care made to her and my father's life. I would not want to give anyone anything less.
