As people know I am a support worker and have worked in the transition house at Newmarket with a lot of families and I have found it incredibly beneficial as we also get an opportunity to help the clients when difficult/ different situations arise . We can listen and also if needed offer alternative choices , see first hand the way they and their families are interacting and be supportive. Both the clients and their families and friends are going through a change in their lives and need time to adjust and work though different scenarios. Sometimes help is not necessary needed or helpful and there is guilt and confusion grieving and anger. Being in a neutral environment with qualified staff and support networks can help work though issues before the added stress going home .
