I assist individuals with a variety of duties when needed and in doing so show the individual dignity, privacy and independence. I provide personal and practical care for persons with a range of illnesses, thus assisting individuals with getting up in the morning, dressing, undressing and personal care when needed. I help clients with mobility problems, physical disability and learning difficulties. I also help care and support persons who are dying by administering medication or ordering from pharmacy, helping individuals to access the community where I am in regular contact with public services as and when needed. I work on a daily basis with families too as I feel it’s important that the individual and family have a close relationship, feel valued and have a voice. I have always maintained an exceptional level of competence and been praised by my senior managers and families for this and for my professional approach. Whilst in this role I have on many occasions had to find courage in some exceptionally distressing situations for the families of the clients that I have cared for in supported living, one of these being a client suffering Cirrhosis of the liver, guiding them through difficult times by being able to communicate and explain different stages of the seriousness of the illness in a manner with which they felt comforted by.
