Hello everyone, I am a fun and bubbly 33 year old Irish girl. I am very proud to be the 'face' of Hometouch and have happily worked with them for 2 years now. I have also worked in hospitals and residential homes for 6 years.

I specialise in elderly care and Alzheimher's.

I enjoy my role as a carer as enjoy wotking directly with people. I also find for me, it is not only about helping others. I am appreciated by families every day so it is very rewarding for both parties. This role brings out the best person in me and most of all gives me job satisfaction that I had never had before.

I decided I wanted to learn more about people and their illness and how I could help further. So I decided to advance my career as a carer. I am now a Mental health/Psychiatric Nursing Student.

Im afraid I do not have much availability as of todays date 10/10/2017 and can only offer my services in my local area of Finchley or North Finchley.

Thank you for stopping by my profile and good luck with your search.

Sandy has been providing regular care for my husband who suffers from Advanced Dementia. She has been excellent in all the many and diverse aspects of her role and has,in my opinion, all the characteristics of a first class carer. She is totally reliable and professional and an excellent problem solver. Her lively,warm and open personality enable her to gain the trust of her client and she brings an essential lightness of touch to the most difficult situation. She is responsive to the fluctuating moods of my husband and always strikes the right note. He does not easily accept people but trusts her absolutely and clearly feels completely secure with her. I have absolute confidence in her.

It was an uphill struggle to convince our 96 year old gran that she needed extra care; but then Gran met Sandy. Sandy has been absolutely amazing. I feel like she has really made an effort to get to know my gran and so the care she gives her is exactly what she needs. On top of giving such good care to gran, Sandy's communication with the family is really good, and this helps us feel really supported by her and not so alone in looking after gran. I really can’t thank Sandy enough!

Sandy M. has been working as a Carer/Companion for my elderly mother since February of this year. She is a remarkable young lady who has a very bright and engaging personality. She has proved herself to be 100 per cent reliable and very flexible in adjusting to my mother's needs. My mother, who is now 100 years of age, has dementia and usually finds it difficult to feel comfortable and communicate with new people. She did, however, take to Sandy immediately and always enjoys her visits. This has continued over the months and I always find my mother more animated, happier and more settled after Sandy's visits. Sandy manages to engage her in conversation and often gets her laughing and singing during her visits. It has been a great support to me to know that my mother is in safe hands with a young lady who obviously understands the plight of a person with dementia and is able to lift my mother's spirits and give her such good care and companionship. Sandy also gives me frequent feedback on her visits and always texts me if she notices any change in my mother's state of mind or health. All in all, I can truly say that Sandy is a real treasure and I feel we are very fortunate to have found her.

Sandy looked after my aunt over the summer and I can honestly say that she is lovely. Always professional,efficient and reliable. She is very perceptive to people's needs, and my aunt and her immediately got along, a super carer who really cares. We would not hesitate to call on her again.
