Speaks English

I enjoy giving people my time, I have been doing volunteer work for 3 years and am currently still enjoying this.

During my Btec Health and Social Care course I was working in Epsom Hospital as a health care assistant and spent one year training on a stroke ward and another year on a respiratory ward. In 2011, I started working for the Epsom and St Helier Hospital Trust and have been working there since then. I have recently started working as a private carer and I'm really enjoying the attention and extra care I can give in this more relaxed setting and looking to carry this on.

I have a strong belief in showing compassion and promoting independence as much as each individual can manage. I have not chosen this path for money but because I am genuinely interested in people. I'm emphatic, hard working and willing to go the extra mile for my clients.

I have a bubbly personality and enjoy painting, drawing and making music.

I'm mostly available on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Please get in touch if you need a carer, I'd be happy to have a chat with you.
