I have been working as a carer for 7 years and I thoroughly enjoyed the diversity of the job. I've gained experience with caring for people with dementia, eating disorders, learning disabilities, mental health conditions and MS.

I'm friendly, caring, adaptable, experienced with a variety of social situation within the care sector. I'm always reliable, compassionate and hard working.

Outside of care work I'm a successful designer living in Brighton having graduated from the Royal College of Art. I work from home but love the social and interactive nature of care. I love travelling, art designing and meeting new people.

I'm available full time during the week except Wednesday afternoon, preferably in the Brighton-Hove area or Central London. I am also available and flexible with hours so please do get in touch so we can discuss.

Please get in touch to discuss your needs and arrange an appointment.

James is a real treasure. I am a bit reluctant to write this, in case the secret of how wonderful James is gets out! My 92 year old mum, who has cancer and alzheimer's, adores him. He treats her like a princess, makes her up, does her hair, plays the piano and does art work with her. He is equally helpful with all the domestic and down to earth chores, washing her, cleaning up ‘messy’ accidents. He has also hospital sat mum through the night to keep her safe. He is patient and kind to her. He always takes care with mum when she is moved to ensure that she feels safe and takes care not to hurt her. He is very careful when helping her to walk to make sure she feels safe and doesn’t fall. James is always on time, flexible and ready to help in an emergency. We are truly blessed with James and I can’t thank, or praise him, enough. My mum is loved and safe with this very special special man. We can all relax safe in the knowledge that our mum is safe and happy with James. A rare treasure indeed.

We were very impressed with James. He came to the Nursing Home to meet K prior to her discharge home to her flat – he was professional and full of excellent ideas and how important it would be to communicate with the carers coming into Kathy on his day’s off. K really took to him, James was very flexible and came in on her first day home and was prepared to come in at any time that was convenient. From our point of view James was an excellent ambassador. he was very professional, caring, flexible with a lovely sense of humour – we are truly grateful for his help and support for the very short time Kathy was at home which was her dearest wish. We are confident that James will be snapped up as a carer and will be very much in demand in the Brighton/Hove area.
