I am fully self employed, I have my own independent insurance as well as Curam insurance. My DBS is on the online service and any documentation relating to my work is available for any employer wishing to see, please feel free to ask for your own peace of mind and assurance, though Curam are fabulous at updating and checking all their care support staffs records, I can totally relate and understand the relevance of getting the correct care for the person requiring care, so please feel free to ask me any relevant questions you may have, happy to oblige. Interests and hobbies, I like places of history and art, i like music festivals and events and I have incorporated these in my previous job roles as well, taking people I support to local events of interest. Family play a big role in my life and in working capacity people you support are like a second working family as you are involved with all aspects of their life and you have to work to ethics and certain standards and values as we all do in our family life. I do a lot of walking and i am quiet lucky to have lots of interesting places to explore right here on my own doorstep, walking to the people I have supported in the past keeps them active but also opens up a sense of achievement and places of interest as well. I do exercise have some gym equipment at home so I do the odd hour when I can. I work with computers as I do a lot of my training online but it also a social network of communication between myself family and friends, I believe more people should be encouraged and supported to try the internet in 1 format or another as there are lots of programs out there to support and encourage people to try new things and make it fun and interesting. When not working in support I do the odd bit of volunteer work for a local place of art and interest as a custodian which i highly enjoy. To wind down after work i tend to do read or complete puzzles or the odd game online to keep my brain active. Why I do my job.. I have been a mum to Three now very grown up children and Two of which have medical problems, One as they got older grew out of the problems they had as they matured and got past the teenage phase, but my son was born with several problematic issues so I was a mum and carer for my son which guided me to succeed in the career I now choose to do in support work for others. I think it brings another dimension and element to the work I do as I have been in some situations that people I support family have been in for example so i can empathize with people, I have not just chose a career it chose me when I had to raise my son and I think between us we did good as he went to main stream school, then college and then did Two years at university and is now a father to his own family and I think that one of the main reasons I do care I like to see results, to make a difference in someone's life and making a real change to the lives of the people I provide support and care for as well as their community of friends family and carers who work with each individual as a team. The people you then support lead fuller and more compassionate life and the job you work is always rewarding, the professional relationships we build and form with people we support instils a sense of personal achievement for both worker and person in support by raising their morale and helping them maintain independence, I consider the work I do as important and support worker for me is more than just a job, I have learnt so much about myself and in all different areas of the work I do and the training I complete, but also from the people I work with and the people I work for. Being in support work opens your eyes and provides me with a chance to work with a plethora of interesting complex people. WHAT MAKES ME A GOOD SUPPORT WORKER So what does makes a good support worker? There are many personal and professional attributes which contribute to making a good Support Worker, but most of all the ability to support someone to exercise control of the following aspects of their lives. On a professional basis, you have to be someone who understand the value and importance of the principles of continuing professional development and of learning and methods of self-evaluation different types of communication and positive working approaches the difference between work relationships and personal relationships and how work relationships can be maintained professionally, to employ person centred approaches to the work you do and I work on a needs led basis a lot of the time. A good support worker empowers each person they support to become more independent and involved in their local community, and have a sense of achievement in all they do.
