Jordan’s Story With Blue Wing NDIS Disability Service
Hi, Welcome to the Blue Wing show, where we’re going to talk about relief, support, care and family for our participants. It is our mission to show you there is help and support and people that care about the individuals.
So, my name is Jordan and I’ve been a client of Blue Wing for three and a half years. My disability is psychosocial. I have a lot of mental health issues, including eating disorder, borderline personality, depression, anxiety. Before Blue Wing came about, I was looking at different disability services, but a lot of them weren’t really big on mental health and psychosocial. They’re more the disability like the physical side. So, with Blue Wing, like they also think they care about their mental health, and they care about the whole well-being of a person. They also think about how life can cause, depression and want to help in that sense as well.
Hi, I’m Mary Joe, but I prefer people to call me MJ, just to make it a little bit easier. I’ve been a Goal Facilitator since the beginning of the year. It’s been quite an interesting journey. It’s really all about trying to get to know the person that you work with as well and a lot with mental health especially with Jordan. She gets quite shy, very timid. At the beginning, she was really good at hiding her feelings.
So, January, I had a big life crisis I guess you could say, but Blue Wing literally saved my life, they helped me. They made sure that I was safe because I wasn’t in a very good head space, but with the help of my Support Coordinator at the time and Zoe, they managed to convince me what was right, what was safe. I think if I didn’t have Blue Wing I would be in a totally different place.
I feel like Jordan has come quite far from when she first started, her independence her slowly coming through to the independence. Doing things for herself, being able to be on top of bills and stuff as well when it comes. Because she really wants to move out and I think she’ll do amazing moving out.
Hi, I’m Georgina West and I am a Support Coordinator for Blue Wing Care Professionals. So, my role is to help build on capacity. So, starting those early intervention things, so support workers and therapists can continue those services and support clients. We are slowly transitioning Jordan into her own accommodation. We’re looking for everything.
With the help of Blue Wing, I’ve come to a space in my life, where I am more stable than I used to be. So, I’m just really excited for my future. As Georgina said, we’re looking at me, going into my own accommodation, to be independent and living by myself. I’m excited about that. I’m also excited because I’m actually looking at what I want to do as a career and I’m looking at studying and with the help of Blue Wing and looking into things like that. So, my dream job is actually to be the help like what I’ve gotten. So, a support worker or a social worker or something, that’s what I want to do. I’m really excited that I’m at a point in life that I can actually look forward to the future.
