Helper Spotlight: Meet Kerri
Helper Spotlight: Meet Kerri!
My name is Kerri-Anne, however everyone calls me Kerri.
I am married to Gurjeet and am a mother to 2 boys. We love to sing and dance together. My children are a massive inspiration for me to continue with my goals in life, as I know I can show them that no matter what life throws your way, things always sort themselves out.
I have a passion for reading and the outdoors. I enjoy playing soccer and going for walks along the beach with my family.
I love to read and listen to music while having a nice cup of coffee. I am reading a good book at the moment - The Red Queen.
It’s about a young girl who is different than everyone else, and she's on her journey to find out the reason why.
The best decision I made was choosing to become a personal care assistant and Helper. As much as I loved my job in residential care, I wanted to be able to support people in the comfort of their own home. I am also very lucky because Gurjeet works as a Helper as well, so we understand and can support each other.
A typical day as a Helper for me is helping the member start their morning eating our meals together, doing some gardening and later on sitting outside watching the sunset while having a cup of tea and talking about our memories.
My favourite part of my job is watching the progress of the Members and hearing their stories.
I think my greatest strength is communication, being able to encourage people to try their best to achieve positive outcomes.
