*Amy is an example of someone you could support:
"My name is Amy and I live in a lovely big manor house with 19 of my friends. I love the people I live with, we have lots of fun but sometimes we do disagree. I have autism and I cannot talk. I have no concept of time and very little life skills. I struggle to be able to do most daily things that some people could take for granted. This is where you make a difference as my Support Worker.
"You will be there in the morning to assist me to get up, washed and dressed and help me cook my breakfast. We then spend the day doing activities, I love being in the garden and having fresh air. I can get very upset when it’s raining, and this can cause me to make loud noises and hit out or hurt myself. My Support workers are great, they are there for me when I’m sad or worried, they talk to me and explain things in a clearer way, so I can process what’s happening. Without them I wouldn’t be able to have independence in my own home which is what life is all about isn’t it! The staff are so patient, and kind and they make me laugh."
