What does support mean?

“I have been employed by this provider for many years as an Autism Advocate & Companion. I have gained fantastic experience supporting vulnerable adults. I support them with their daily living skills such as making sure they have enough money for their shopping or helping them to make a freshly cooked meal. I really enjoy helping people to do activities they enjoy. I have helped them to go skiing, go-karting and loads more, and I just love it. Watching people achieve their goals makes me so proud and the job is so rewarding that it doesn’t even feel like work. Being part of this company makes me proud and they have helped me achieve my own personal career goals and my confidence has grown too. I joined the company years ago, but I wish I had done it sooner.”
