A year or two before I became part of the team at the Chiltern Centre, I was living and caring for my grandpa, who ad Alzheimer’s. This was a challenging, yet very special time for me, spent with family. Before that time, I did some 1:1 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. When I was growing up, my family took people in for respite care
Your biggest Achievement
The special time I spent caring for my grandpa, during which time I studied at the Open University where I wrote some poetry about him. During this time I enjoyed raising money for Sue Ryder by giving up some social media time and took pictures to create a tangible photo album of the summer spent with him, family and friends.
