CLIENT PROFILE – TOM

My name is Tom and I am a care client of York Personal Support. I currently work for an employment charity called Resume Foundation which specialises in helping marginalised individuals into work. In my spare time I like going to the theatre, watching films at the cinema and supporting my favourite football team, Wolverhampton Wanderers, whether they win, lose or draw!
I first became a care client of York Personal Support in 2017 whilst completing my PhD in the contemporary 21st century American disability poetry of Jim Ferris, Stephen Kuusisto and Laurie Clements Lambeth.
York Personal Support gave me all the support I needed to achieve my goals in life. They created a care plan that supported my needs and requirements and helped me feel more in control. I have three care sessions a week and receive personal support with washing, ironing and cleaning. As well as these important tasks, I have been supported and enabled to take up swimming weekly on a Friday, which is a wonderful end to my week.
I am extremely grateful for all the support I have received from care workers at York Personal Support. Their time and effort have enabled me to live my life to the fullest and free up time to socialise with my friends and have fun. Thanks again for always putting me and other clients at the centre when devising our social care.

The support from York Personal Support and my PA has normalised and enhanced my quality of life, improving my outlook for the future. It is the best decision I ever made!

My experience of using this service has been of a high standard in all aspects.

York Personal Support helped me to build and maintain my confidence and stability following my discharge from mainstream mental health service. I would highly recommend their services.
