About Chantal M.

My individual caring style is patient centred care. When I first meet a client, I like to get to know them- their likes, dislikes and their life story. I love to learn about their work life, family life and important events to them because I know that greatly shapes their personality. I feel like I can make a connection when I know a bit more about them and for that reason, I am happy to answer any questions the client has about me so they can get to know me better. We can then find common interests, activities to do together and begin to build a good working relationship. I work around the needs of the client and also make sure every decision is in their best interest. This comes hand in hand with good care planning and a daily routine that involve the client in the daily decision making. I promote their health by encouraging the client to do tasks they are capable of doing and want to be involved with, instead of being doing things for them and taking away that bit of independence. Because I have worked in the care sector for many years, I am comfortable caring for people with complex conditions and am good at making quick decisions in emergency situations so I do not feel there is any situation that could unnerve me. I am capable of caring for those with mobility needs with the aid of equipment.
