Sharon – Support Worker

Being PA to Daisy on her own Personal Budget is great fun.

It is a fantastic experience enabling so much more choice for activities, days out, and chill out time.
Being able to work closely with Daisy in a small regular team has helped build a trusting, professional relationship for all.

General skills and experience picked up from immediate family are so important to providing the best support Daisy could ever wish for.

One of the exciting things Daisy does is going to Henshaws in Knaresborough where she has made lots of friends.

The new friends Daisy have made there, are including her in conversations, activities, and she is receiving party invites often leaving us PA’s feeling left out but never unhappy!

It is refreshing to see many of Daisy’s new friends ask her questions directly and as her PA’s we can help interpret answers to keep the conversation flowing and ensure Daisy stays included.

I am learning everyday and enjoy every minute.

The choices Daisy makes, in how she spends her time is very important, and I feel very honoured to be part of it.

I love the fact that I look forward so much to going to work in the morning and go home really happy.
