My name is Paula Bulgarelli, I am Brazilian and have lived in London for nineteen years. I have been a nanny for the past five years and in the last year and a half I have also been working as a domiciliary carer during school hours and at the weekends.
Since I decided to change careers and work as a home carer in London I have found that I love the work I do; I can make a real difference in people's lives and I find this incredibly rewarding. It gives me a great deal of pleasure to deliver elderly care, especially as I am away from my older relatives in Brazil.
I am very caring and trustworthy. I also understand the need for flexibility and I take pride in being punctual and professional in all my home care appointments. I am able to follow instructions and also take initiative when necessary. During my time working in elderly care I have gained experience helping to look after people with severe mobility issues and also with dementia, alcoholism, incontinence and multiple sclerosis and the many difficulties arising from these. I have also overseen short spells in hospital as a carer and been the main point of contact between the doctors and families.
Prior to this I worked as a manager in catering for over 13 years. I graduated as an architect in Brazil before coming to England. My hobbies and interests include photography and traveling whenever possible.
