Renewal date: Nov 2019
I’ve now got over 3 years experience as a live-in carer/companion looking after people with dementia, Alzheimer’s and ideally this would be the type of work I am looking for. I got into care work by chance when a friend asked me if I could help look after her parents and I really enjoyed it. I think this is a specialised area requiring a greater level of skill and my training as a counsellor has definitely been a plus.
I enjoy my work and regard it as a privilege. I’m reliable, patient, empathic, trustworthy, have good listening and communication skills and am able to remain calm in stressful situations. In addition to being upbeat and positive I’m told I’ve got a great sense of humour.
I’m a mother of three children who have now flown the nest. I have a wide range of interests including sport – I play tennis and golf. I enjoy cooking, gardening, reading, doing crosswords and listening to Radio 4. I regularly visit art galleries, exhibitions in London and I enjoy socialising and seeing my friends and family.
I'm available after the 12th March so please get in touch if you're looking for a carer and we can arrange a call.
