For the past 11 years I have been a carer providing care for individuals with dementia, cancer patients, COPD, Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, learning disabilities, challenging behaviour and stroke. I have always liked helping people and seeing that I have been able to put a smile on someone’s face is something that keeps me going and that’s how my passion to be a carer stemmed from. I have also worked as an assistant support manager and night care worker undertaking duties such as cooking, cleaning, manual handling, maintaining accurate records, social support, companionship and administering of medication.

I always put myself into my client's shoes and always willing to go the extra mile. I am a good listener, patient, respectful, hardworking and always show empathy towards my client.

In my spare time I enjoy listening to music, cooking, reading, travelling, watching movies, taking my clients out for a walk, shopping, going to the theatre/cinema and playing games.

I am available from the beginning of February and flexible to travel. Please do contact me to discuss your needs.
