When I was looking for employment a few years ago, I wanted a job/career that would be challenging, but also enjoyable and worthwhile. A job where I could hopefully make a difference. I began working for Future HSC as a support worker. Just over four years ago, and I have to say it has been very interesting and I have learned so much, about other people and also myself. I assist people in their own homes. Depending on the individual’s needs, I could be prompting them to take their medication, assisting them with household tasks, personal care, shopping and giving emotional support. My role is to help people to maintain their independence and to live their lives as they want to, ensuring they are treated with dignity and respect. It can be very challenging mentally at times, but it is very worthwhile. Since I have been with Future I have met a lot of interesting people, both clients and colleagues and feel I am valued as an employee. I have a manager who is very supportive and who leads by example. I am always being encouraged and feel I am valued as an employee and a person.
