Speaks English

I have been working as a carer since 2008 and I have gained vast experience working with different clients across different health settings like residential, nursing homes, rehabilitation centre and in private homes. I have cared for clients with dementia, cancer, end of life, Parkinson’s, autism, challenging behaviour and also assisted with duties such as cooking, bathing, feeding, making appointments, meal prep and taking clients out to social clubs or events.

I am a caring, loving and empathetic carer with a lot of experience and readily willing to share my expertise with clients who require my assistance. I always involve my clients in setting out their care requirements as I believe this provides a better bespoke person centered service to better cater to their everyday needs. I also encourage my clients to get out of their comfort zone and try something new every time and this also helps to build on their independence.

My hobbies are playing football, going gym, swimming, walking, reading, watching sports on television and travelling. I also enjoy doing activities with my clients for example cooking ‘together, watching tv, playing cards or playing outdoor games.

I am totally flexible to travel nationwide and available for live in. I prefer to work long term, then take 1 week off and am very flexible.
