Tina Jones - Social Care Assessor (Tewkesbury)
“I enjoy working in Adult Social Care as it involves working as a team to make a difference, working with people, empowering then to be independent, making a difference, whilst supporting them to make decisions about their life’s, and “making a difference.”
My job involves working with people in the community, helping them to help themselves, providing support, information on how to live at home safely and assessing their needs in line with the legislation.”
Lizzie Thornhill - (Learning Disabilities)
“I enjoy working for GCC and feel supported in my role. I also enjoy the benefits that working for GCC offers including an on site reasonably priced restaurant. I find my role extremely rewarding working with vulnerable adults of all disabilities, to support them to live as independently as they are able and being part of their community. I remain professional and respectful of all people all of the time and remain committed to services for vulnerable and older people. My main role is to support plan to meet eligible needs identified in their care needs assessment and feel valued for my accomplishments by both themselves and management. I signpost, give information, advice and follow up outstanding issues or concerns on their behalf. I meet inspirational people who are appreciative of the work carried out by professionals to support individuals to achieve good outcomes. It is great to see people’s faces light up when you tell them about a free service they are unaware of right on their doorstep enabling them to live as fulfilled a life as they are able.”
