On the Dias: Team Member Highlight:
Dedicated and Devoted, Deidre (Dee)
Dee joined Flair & Fine Care when she was a baby. Since then, she has proven herself as a dedicated, responsible and professional team member, who understands the need for tailored and individualised support. A pleasant and cheerful disposition with an objective, yet keen observation, she always offers her clients a safe space and well-rounded support. She writes excellent shift notes, which are reflective and focused on the participant’s statement and goals. She extended her support to train new team members how to write reflective shift notes on the progress of each client. DeeDeeCreation@BearsbyDee
Let’s see what Dee has to say about herself!
“While living in Tasmania, I volunteered with the Cancer Council. A large part of it was interacting with people of all ages and backgrounds. I filled many roles as a public speaker on Sun Smart Awareness to schools, businesses and public forums, helped raise funds and was trained to work on the helpline. I moved to Victoria 13 years ago to begin a new adventure. I managed a fast-food outlet, then moved to work in a warehouse doing online orders. I later made the decision to go back to the work I love! So here I am, up and running again and absolutely content working for Flair & Fine Care. They have a very caring approach towards all their workers, and they fully support us as well.”
In her free time, Dee makes beautiful and unique hand-crafted teddy bears. Want to have a look at these beauties?
Participants’ Arena: Gary Mulcahy
When it comes to the improvement and steady steps towards independence, Gary Mulcahy appears as a star for Flair & Fine Care. Smiling, entertaining and food-loving Gary has achieved tremendous improvement in his skills. He loves his job and continues to brush up on the skills needed for employment. Regularly as a clock, Gary shines the world with his beautiful smile. In his free time, he likes to watch the news and build model vehicles.
Because You are Precious
How do we help our clients experience activities when they may seem hesitant? We know that we should allow for the dignity of risk in allowing choice and control of how one chooses to live their lives and how they choose to do so. The role of the support worker is to find creative, stimulating and challenging community and home experiences to continue to build positive mental health. Working within the NDIS framework we feel measurable by the experiences made available and accessed.
What is Happening Around?
There’s good news for children.
