I was a safeguarding Lead when working as a Locum Social Worker and have many year’s experience working with clients with Learning Disabilities, acquired brain injury, as well as older people, where I gained valuable knowledge with regard to degenerative brain diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Dementia and Parkinson’s Disease.
I have a passion for ensuring that people are given the right to make their own choices whenever at all possible. I have always worked in a very person-centered way. I aim to facilitate the process of supporting clients to express their needs and wishes and to continue living life the way they wish.
The Mental Capacity Act is such useful piece of legislation which enables those who have capacity to make their own choices and safeguard’s those who don’t, by enabling the people who know them best to make a decision in their best interest.
My job gives me so much satisfaction and with TSF I have the time and support I need to be able to support my clients fully, which is extremely satisfying to me as a professional and person.
