Hello everyone! I am a fun and bubbly 34 year old who originates from Ireland. I am very proud to be the 'face' of Hometouch since joining them 2 years ago when I first moved to London.
Before coming to London, I worked in healthcare in Australia and Ireland.
I specialise in Alzheimhers/dementia/elderly care and have 6 years experience within residential care, private care and hospitals. I take my work very seriously but I also promise to bring along a smile and a sence of humour.
My role in healthcare has never been just a job for me, I thoroughly enjoy working directly with people. Especially on a one to one basis where I have the time to build a therapeutic relationship, offer 100% support and make a differance in their lives. This, I find is very benefical for families and is the very reason I prefer to work in private care.
I also find that the relationship can be rewarding for both parties. For me, it is not only about helping others but this role has brought out the best person in me, I have learned how to really communicate with people, I've become more socially confident and my level of compassion has heightened. I am appreciated by individuals and their families every day and have built and maintained many friendships, resulting in job satisfaction.
Additionally, I am fascinated with the science of healthcare and how I can help further in this field so I recently went back to school, training for 3 years to be a Psychiatric/Mental Health Nurse at Middlesex University.
My course is very demanding, so unfortunately I cannot offer emergency care or offer my services in areas which exceed Finchley/North Finchley.
Thank you for stopping by here and I wish you luck in your search!
