Speaks English

I have assisted clients with a wide variety of conditions and illnesses. I have experience with palliative care, assisted clients with dementia, and clients with stoma bags, catheters, or who were bed bound or wheelchair dependent. I have 17 years experience in care and I always endeavour to provide the highest standards of care. In all instances, I treat each client as an individual. I place great value on maintaining their privacy and dignity, as well as respecting their choices and ensuring they remain independent where they can.

I have a good work ethic and am highly organised and motivated. Apart from being good humoured, I am responsible, helpful, and very reliable. I am a conscientious, devoted carer, who has extensive experience and training in personal care and carrying out risk assessments.

I enjoy cooking, reading, and studying health and social care courses. I love board games and doing word puzzles, and I am keen to learn new things and would relish any new opportunities. I am available for live in care. Feel free to send me a message and we can discuss your needs and timing.

Josephine provided live-in care for my father for a few days and did a great job. She is a very patient and attentive person, and applies a high level of attention to detail when carrying out various tasks. She was capable in very quickly learning new ways of doing things in the house, and showed empathy and understanding when interacting with my father. We look forward to working with Josephine again in the future.
