I have worked as a carer for 4 years and it appeals to me on various levels, working with the elderly and assisting them in all areas of their lives gives me a great deal of job satisfaction. To help them continue to live as independently as they possibly can in their own home and being a part of their community.

I enjoy the companionship that daily outings; shopping, community based projects and activities bring. Having general discussions, listening to music and going for a walk.

I enjoy going to the gym, I'm a big fan of yoga and a keen cyclist. I enjoy travelling to different countries, amercing myself in the culture, foods, music and people.

I have a flexible schedule with particular availability on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.

Please get in touch to discuss your needs.

Holly is a cheerful, down-to-earth young woman who stepped in and helped care for my husband with dementia while I went on a 3-week respite trip. She took my husband out for many walks around Hampstead Heath; they both enjoyed a little treat in the cafe afterwards. She was punctual, reliable, and trustworthy, and carried out her duties with good humour, even when my husband was in a difficult or uncooperative mood. She struck me as someone able to think on her feet; such resourcefulness is essential when working with people with dementia. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking for a reliable and capable carer. I hope to be able to avail of her services again in the future.
