I am a university graduate who has worked in the arts for many years and have lived and worked in many parts of the world. I am also a graduate of the Lady Apsley school for Butlers and have worked trans-atlantically in this capacity. I began working in the "caring" field whilst living in Australia and in the 10 years in which I have been privileged to work in this area it has become a vocation for me. The work is all about relationships and trust. It is about getting the right fit between carer and client. I have to say that I have been fulfilled beyond measure by the long standing relationships which I formed; with both male and female clients whist working in this industry. To be able to provide companionship and support has brought a fulfilment I had never found in the many areas of work which I have pursued during my career. I look forward to the opportunity of establishing more of these mutually rewarding relationships and to providing responsible and individual care.

Mark presented himself in an immaculate professional manner and was always punctual and reliable. He quickly proved to be honest, trustworthy, courteous and charming. Mark conducted himself in a very respectful manner towards my father and family alike. We all hold Mark in very high regard - we consider him part of the family.
Previous Employer

Mark has been employed by us as a Community Care Giver for the past five years. In this role Mark has assisted families in their ability to keep their loved ones home, rather than placement. He has provided Respite Care in what is often very demanding and difficult situations with the upmost professionalism and caring support to both clients and their families. Mark has been an outstanding member of the Community Care Team and will be very much missed by clients, families, Co-ordination team and Case Managers.

Mark has been an amazing help to our family over the past 9 months. He has helped take care of my father who has had a stroke and also suffers from dementia. But more than the help he provides to caring for him, he has been an enormously positive influence on my mother, the primary care giver. We can't recommend Mark enough!
