I am a semi-retired male with a background working in the property industry both in the UK and abroad, as an Estate Agent and residential developer. For the last four years I have been employed by an agency and privately as a carer/companion. My duties have included driving, caring, companionship, cooking, washing, and ironing as well as home administration, banking and running errands. I have assisted clients with their trips abroad including accompanying, organising transport, accommodation and wheel chair access. I am a well educated and well spoken, honest empathic person, caring, a good listener and communicator. I have cared for gentlemen with dementia and the early stage of alzheimers and depression as well as ladies who are disabled or recently bereaved.

Charlie Short has worked for me on and off for the past three years, as a carer and companion. His duties have included home administration, personal care, cooking, washing and ironing, shopping and running errands. In addition to this he has arranged transport and accompanied me to various medical and hospital appointments and on holiday. He has also acted as an ‘aide memoire’ and prompt where necessary. Charlie has carried out his duties well and has been a great support over the years.
