About Bamidele A.

Hi, my name is Dele, a social care and support worker who is competent, flexible, good communicator, honest, reliable, caring and always willing to support others. I am experienced in working with different group of people, children, yound adult, men, women, elderly and people with disabilities. I have also deal with numbers of issues within my family unit. My 15 years of experience in support and care work involves programs of personal care and household care management that is personalized for each service user in the form of person centered care plan. I have genuine concern for others, able to respond to the unexpected and determined to make a positive difference to someones life. I treat everybody equally and I understand that my clients' privacy is very important and must be confidential. I love going out, reading, cooking and having quality time with friends and family when I am free from work. I'm available for overnight stays as well. I'd be very happy if I can be given the opportunity to discuss my experiences and how I can be beneficial to you.

“I’d like to take this opportunity to mention how much we have appreciated the excellent care and support that Bamidele gave our mum and us on a daily basis for over six months. We originally just wanted a carer for cover over Christmas but, found her so good that we extended her contract. We can fully appreciate that caring for someone in the early/mid stages of dementia is very stressful for a family but, Bamidele is very impressive: she always managed to calm our mum down – she never raised her voice, on the contrary she was quiet and reassuring and yet firm when she needed to be. For example, when giving mum her medication which was kept locked in a safe mum would demand the key, or sometimes refuse to take the tablets. Bamidele always smoothed the situation and mum always took her meds. Also, because we work Bamidele was the person who made sure that the front and back doors were locked when she left. She was very dependable for safety measures and for last minute time changes if we had any problems with getting over to mum’s. She was also very friendly and she and mum always got on well. When there were the inevitable difficulties which arise from a person with dementia as the illness progresses Bamidele always adapted to them and was a constant support to the whole family. She helped mum in cleaning and washing and the appearance of the house improved. When mum had a fall she even went with her to A&E and insisted on waiting there till she could go home again. The service she provided has been excellent adjusting to our circumstances perfectly. She really tried to fit in with the family and couldn’t have been better. We would highly recommend her.”
