Speaks English, Spanish

As a carer I have worked with a variety of patients - from looking after Dementia patients to caring for people with Parkinson's disease. I have 3 years professional experience in the UK and 5 years in Spain. I have worked in care homes, for care agencies and for private clients doing domiciliary work and live in care and overnight shifts. My particular specialism is working as a carer for people with Dementia as I have training in specialised assistance for Alzeihmers.

As well as working as a carer I was previously a firefighter and paramedic with Spanish Red Cross. I am also a trained Osteopath and previously ran my own business in this field.

I am a cheerful, fun and a very open-minded individual and an honest and caring person. It is important to me to make a difference to every customer who I work with. I bring pleasant manners, trying to do my best at all times. I hold a European passport and speak fluent English and Spanish. I have been living in London since 2012 and I would like to stay here for a long time.

Frank worked for us two evenings a week, caring for my husband. He was very good and has a nice manner. He is compassionate and took his time with my husband which he really appreciated.

Frank worked for us for a few months to care for my aunt. He was very good and reliable. He is a very caring person, compassionate and well prepared and has very good knowledge and experienced. He was always on time and responsible and did his very best for our family. I would definitely recommend him.
