A Day In the Life Of a Support Worker
One of our longest serving and most experienced support workers put pen to paper and described in their own words what it meant to become a support worker and why they enjoy working at Triple S so much…..
The main reason was attributed to how they wanted to be a part of the change in the care that was being provided in a positive manner and to help improve their clients’ quality of life and to not only be there to celebrate during times of success but to offer encouragement in times of need.
Working in care that is centred on the individual, means providing assistance in their daily routine and even the minutest achievement such as planning or preparing meals could mean the world to someone who is not able to complete such activities on their own, therefore providing our service users with more independence.
The most rewarding part of becoming a support worker, for this particular support worker, is to see the service users smiling and to feel that we have contributed to their happiness and wellbeing.
Becoming a support worker is not for the faint hearted and although working in this profession can seem daunting, the rewards far outweigh this. Being able to see the impact that a support worker can have on their clients is profound and not only leaves an impression on the client but the wider community itself.
The possibilities with support work are endless and the journey starts here at Triple S!
