One of the most rewarding aspects of our relationship with NDIS participants here at HCG, is being able to be part of the journeys of individuals over time as they develop skills, build capacity, and achieve their personal goals 👍
We heard recently from Karen, who alongside her Support Worker Sam, are kicking goals together 👩👩
When Sam started supporting Karen, she very rarely left her room and told Sam that she hadn’t been able to enjoy her passion for arts and crafts for several years.
After building a relationship on some common interests, Sam and Karen began working on Karen’s goals ✅
Sam started to notice that each week Karen became brighter and more enthusiastic.
Over time, despite the challenges of COVID and lockdowns, Karen began building her confidence and with the support of Sam, Karen began engaging with members of staff where she lives and getting out into the community.
Recently, Sam assisted Karen to sort through her life belongings and greatly valued the opportunity to allow Karen to share her memories of her life 📸
Karen recently told Sam she has begun working on her arts and crafts again, and is hoping to enjoy these activities on supports with Sam 👩🎨🎨
We are proud to share Karen’s achievements, now setting her own goals with Sam and breaking down the barriers of social isolation 🏆
Great Job Karen and Sam ❤️
