Wilma Smith – Senior Support Worker

“My name is Wilma Smith, I am a Senior Support key worker at Eglinton day care.  I have worked for South Ayrshire Dementia Association for twenty-three years plus.

I worked in Heathfield Hospital as a Domestic while my kids were small and then emigrated to South Africa and was working as a book-keeper.  I came back to Ayr and got my old job back in Heathfield and the Biggart Hospital as a Housekeeper.  I took my HNC, SVQ 2, SVQ 3 and many more qualifications.  I started as a Home Support Worker, then onto the day care in Carrick Street Halls working up to a manager’s position of two centres.  I am now where I enjoy most working on the floor delivering a good quality of care to each and every individual.”
