About Catia A.

I am originally from Portugal and started my career as a TV producer and Journalist. I then became interested in the care industry after learning about the challenges and felt empowered to help make a difference. I have been working as a Carer since 2015 and have successfully completed the Care Certificate. I enjoy learning and have been involved in various training programmes including Dementia Awareness and End of Life Care. I have vast experience working with multiple patients with various conditions supporting them to be independent. I consider myself a good communicator, person-centered and someone who likes to listen to understand the needs of the people in my care.
