About Recho W.

I am a qualified and fully trained senior carer with over 20 years’ experience, 15 years working in the NHS surgical and medical wards, orthopaedics and urology. I provide discreet and sensitive personal care. I am reliable, compassionate and empathetic. I believe that caring for somebody goes beyond just looking to their care and medication plans. In am a friend and companion. I gain a great deal of satisfaction from helping an encouraging people to do the things they like rather than them just sitting alone in their home. My clients have told me they appreciate how I listen to what they say. Always striking a balance between their wishes and their needs. I am trained to care for people with a range of conditions, including Spinal Injury, Dementia, Parkinson's disease and other age related conditions such mobility problems. In addition to providing care services, I run a charitable organisation in Tanzania. This provides educational materials to the younger children of families who have very little. A charity I fund out of my own pocket.
