About Gemma S.

I enjoy giving people my time, I have been doing volunteer work for 3 years and am currently still enjoying this. In September 2010, as part of the BTec Health and Social Care course, I started working in Epsom Hospital as a Health Care Assistant and spent one year training on a stroke ward and a further year on a respiratory ward. I continue to work part time in Epsom Hospital to ensure training and skills are kept up to date. Since 2016, I joined Home Touch as a private carer which enables me to give personal one to one attention and care in a relaxed home setting. I am genuinely interested in people and have a very strong commitment in showing compassion and empathy together with a belief in promoting independence as much as each individual is able to achieve. I am very willing to go the extra mile for my clients. I have an outgoing and bubbly personality and enjoy recreational activities such as reading, drawing, painting and music together with outdoor pursuits including kayaking, cycling and walking. I enjoy a wide circle of friends and family and I am involved in volunteer work since leaving full time education. I hold Carer & Personal Assistant Public Liability Insurance and Vehicular Business Insurance. I'm mostly available from 7am to 10am Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Please get in touch if you need a carer, I'd be happy to have a chat with you.

Ok with cats or dogs
