Kathryn came to Accuro Homecare after completing her Certificate III in Individual Support. Previously, she did a stint with a Fairfax newspaper and spent 16 years working in child care. She decided a change in career was in order as she loves helping others and loves the satisfaction of assisting those that she supports stay in their home and out of institutional care for longer.
The support she provides enables her clients to remain as independent as possible, maintaining their pride and dignity.
Here is what some of clients have shared with us. "She is a wonderful girl and wonderful cleaner. I don't know what I would do without her coming to see me twice a week. She makes my day. Also, "Katie is an excellent driver and I feel comfortable in the car with her".
Kathryn has a full roster providing a range of supports for her regulars that love her. This includes;
- Personal Care
- Domestic Support
- Social Support
This is what Kathryn says about her favourite client-"She is so lovely and makes me feel so special and needed in her life. I truely think I'm the lucky one getting to care for such a wonderful human being."
Her tip for being a good Direct Support Worker -"Always treat your clients as would for your own loved ones and you'll always do a great job."
