I am emphatic, committed and very understanding to the needs of the service user. I have the ability to adapt to new challenges, and also has passion for caring for others. Because of my experience supporting a wide range of people from different backgrounds with different conditions, I am very aware of how vital it is to take a person centred approach when caring for someone.
I am comfortable with anything from companionship to the higher levels of care requiring moving and handling equipment and can also adapt to meet a clients changing needs. It is an absolute must that my clients feel listened to and have the opportunity to maintain the independence they have on a daily basis. I am very in tune to someone's needs and I always make sure these needs are met.
I love to get to know people and I think it is really important to build a good relationship with my clients by taking an interest in their hobbies and interests and going out with them. I am flexible when I am working and adapt well to new situations. I make sure the day is structured around the needs of my client but am also prepared for plans to change whenever needed. I really enjoy activities I can get my client involved with such as games, cooking, walks and general conversation and I think this is a really nice way to work together and build trust.
