Please note that I'm doing a live in care job until the end of July so I'm only available after that.

I'm friendly, respectful, sensitive, empathetic, patient and have a good sense of humour which is vitally important as a carer. I have a good caring approach and the ability to relate to people from a variety of backgrounds. In whatever situation with my clients I feel at ease because the people I deal with may feel anxious, afraid, embarrassed or distressed either about their own health or the health of someone they love. I do listen carefully in order to be able to answer questions from my clients, discuss options and give advice on healthier living and all. Clear and good communication is also at the heart of good teamwork with my clients, much of this information comes from observation.

I have about 15 years experience with personal care, mobilisation, making appointments, shopping, doing laundry, private matters and medication prompting. I have worked in care houses, residential homes, live-in jobs and also private care.

I love singing, travelling, walks, socialising, reading, cooking.

I would love to assist you with live in care and hope to hear from you soon.
