There can be hard times as a support worker too, and it’s important to reach out to your colleagues as a support network. Anne had to go through a very difficult experience.
“Someone I supported was diagnosed with a terminal illness and we were told she’d have to go to a hospice or stay with us. We knew she wouldn’t cope in a hospice and, as a team, we kept her in her home. She was happy right until the end… Everybody looked out for each other.”
These are just some of the life changing stories our amazing support workers could share with you.
