Meet Moira Bowater – Good Neighbours new worker

Hello my name is Moira, I am a retired Psychiatric Nurse.moira

Moira Bowater, community support worker

Most of my career in nursing has been working with Children and Adolescents.

I started volunteering with CGN in March 2015 when I retired and have been visiting two ladies in the community for the past 18 months which I have found very interesting and enjoyable.

I started working three days a week as the community support worker at the beginning of July 2016.

I have met a number of people with various needs and have enjoyed getting to know the people I visit. Some of the people I visit I take out shopping in a wheelchair and my driving skills are getting better the more I do it!

Others I visit for a chat or we go for a walk or go to a cafe for a chat and cup of tea or coffee.

I am really enjoying my days getting to know all the people I visit and find the time I spend with them truly rewarding.
