“I started working with Alliance Community, back when it was called Extra Staff in 2012. I have been a support worker for many years and do it because I enjoy helping people. I wanted to be able to spend more time helping people in their own homes.
My most wonderful memory working as a Support Star is the clients I have met who are artists, who paint or write stories and have shown me what they have done. One client was a singer and they sang a song for me. They still had such a lovely voice. I also like to do art including lead pencil drawings, and I’ve also shown a few of my clients my own artwork.
I like helping people. I like the flexibility of being an agency support worker, as I can choose when I work. I like meeting new clients and the variety of ways that I can support them, whether its personal care, domestic assistance, shopping or even respite.
I feel very supported by the office staff in the Adelaide branch of Alliance Community. I have worked with Narelle, my coordinator for all these years and I’m very grateful for her, as well Peter and Amy that work alongside her.”
