Support Worker

Background History

A year or two before I became part of the team at the Chiltern centre, I was living with and caring for my grandpa – who had Alzheimer’s. This was a challenging, yet very special time for me, spent with family. Before that time, I did some one to one support for a young man with cerebral palsy and a boy with dyspraxia.

Why you chose the Chiltern Centre
I chose the Chiltern centre because I was drawn to the idea of supporting people with colourful characters. And my family took people in for respite care when I was growing up.

Your biggest Achievement
The special time I spent caring for my grandpa, during which time I studied at the Open University where I did some writing/ poems about him. During this time I enjoyed raising money for Sue Ryder by giving up some social media for some time and took pictures to create a tangible photo album of the summer time spent with my Grandpa, family and friends.
