Stories from Forward Thinkers
I work directly with the residents here. I know them well, I’ve been here since 2012, and this is like my second home. It’s definitely like a family.
I worked in a hospital before, that was definitely really busy. When I started working here I immediately had more attachment with the residents and I became more interested in spinal cord injury.
It’s a really rewarding place, it’s very fun to work here, it’s not like ‘under pressure’ work. Work here is friendly, with a friendly team. The time is passing very quickly!
Personal Care Assistant
When I first came to Ferguson Lodge, I was a bit apprehensive in working here. I had no knowledge of this type of work but… I’ve been here for 20 years! So if it wasn’t fulfilling and fun for me, then I would’ve left ages ago.
The residents do look upon us as part of their family. I really enjoy coming to work because I know that I can be myself and the residents are quite supportive of that. They’re very cheeky, there’s bantering and joking and, it just makes your shift a lot easier.
CFO & Company Secretary
My favourite thing at Forward is definitely the people. Working with my colleagues and our clients and being able to make a difference in their lives.
My work’s really fulfilling, we get to work together in a collaborative environment all for the same common goal which is to allow our clients to live their best lives.
