Experience of working with young adults with Learning Disabilities.

Experience

I have worked for ESCC in Adult Social Care as a Resource Officer for the past 8 years. It has been a privilege to work with adults diagnosed with severe and enduring mental health problems. I have worked with all age groups from young adults to older people. This has been a rewarding role and I would now like to spend more time with clients supporting them to achieve their goals and help them to maintain their independence in the community.

I believe it is important to maintain a person centred approach and ensure the wishes and preferences of my clients are respected. The client really is the most important person when considering appropriate care.

I have an elderly mother diagnosed with advanced Dementia and have organised appropriate care to maintain her safety. I understand the stress and difficulty of the caring role.

Background

I previously worked as a catering manager for a learning disability residential facility. I have also held various managerial roles in the NHS from general management to human resources.

My guilty pleasures are chocolate cake and listening to Michael Bublé.

My daughters complain they have inherited my wide feet but it means we are all good swimmers…heyho always a silver lining.

There is nothing better than walking my working cocker spaniel in the beautiful Sussex countryside to unwind and recharge the batteries.

Family time is important to me. I have 3 amazing grandsons. Time together is the best thing in the world.

I am a qualified Reflexologist and have completed a course in Aromatherapy.

City & Guilds Level 4 Award in Delivering Personalisation in Practice in Health and Social Care.

All mandatory courses have been completed to comply with Support With Confidence requirements.
