Meet Caroline

Some years ago, Caroline gave up her desk job to become a support worker — a decision she has never regretted. “I find it a lot more fulfilling,” she says.

 

The biggest perk of the job? Encouraging people to believe in themselves enough to overcome their challenges and achieve their dreams. She explains: “Seeing Sharon find her voice and find the courage to try different things ... to see her get back up on that horse with confidence: they are the things I’m most proud of."

“To see how Sharon is flourishing now compared to prior is just amazing.”

Caroline and Sharon’s relationship goes far beyond that of practitioner/client. “We’re a great team. We can bounce off each other, we can joke with each other, we can pick on each other! I’m there to guide Sharon in the right direction, help her out in the community and make sure Sharon’s getting everything she needs, wants and deserves.”

 

What that doesn’t mean, though, is doing things for her. As Caroline explains, independence is key. “We stand back and let them push forward doing what they want to do.” And if something happens? “Well, then we’re there to pick it up, help them along and encourage them not to give up.”

“I want to make a difference in people’s lives.” — Caroline
