Hi there, key worker along same lines as care co-ord? I know for me, anyone who works with me, including my care co-ord, I need them to listen and really hear me. To understand what I struggle with, and not undermine it in anyway. To build a relationship with me so I feel safe to go to them with anything, and know I won't be judged. To encourage me with short and long term plans. To know when to push, and when not to (I have BPD). To help me find words when I sometimes can't (or often!). To help support me when meeting other professionals. To guide me when I need it.
Sounds like a tall order, doesn't it, and that's not nearly everything lol. I really admire anyone who works in this field. Well done, and good luck!
