I have been in the health and social care industry for 18 years. I have experience working in different settings, hospitals, residential and nursing homes, homeless hostels, in the community and in clients' own homes. I have worked with clients who have different types of Dementia and Parkson’s diseased range of clients with terminal illness, learning disabilities, cancer, brain injuries, mental health issues and behaviour problems this includes drug addiction and all alcohol addiction as well.
I have also worked as a phlebotomist and a health care assistant in the hospital. I had to keep the patients calm by chatting to them waist taking their blood and showing my kind caring nature in order to take their blood safely. I was supporting patient’s after their operations by assisting them to get dressed and washed, walking around the hospital, taking them to the local shops, bed making, food serving, assisting feeding, stock taking, collecting medication from pharmacy and reporting any changes in a patient recovery to the nurse in charge.
My current job is supporting clients who have been discharge from hospital back to their homes. I support them by encouraging them to be as independent as possible in order to maintain their self independence by doing this I am giving them a better quality of life. My focus is always upon the client’s person-centre-care as their needs are met and by listing to my clients wishes and communicating with them or their family members I am able to understand what levels of care is required and how to deliver that care in a safe way.
I enjoy meeting new people and putting myself into new environments and situations and adapt very quickly and being a professional worker taken into account my clients needs and the best way to support those needs. I’m a friendly and very experienced carer. I have the ability to listen and acknowledge the needs of my clients, I am also a risk assessor and through this I have the ability to assess the client’s needs both mental and physical. I’m very passionate about helping people with their every day needs by supporting them and giving them back some of their independence.
I am a very active person. As a family we all enjoy nature and spending quality time enjoying the outdoors and visiting different locations in England. We have a small dog which keeps our children very happy. l enjoy working on my home and doing some DIY around my home as well as taking care of the garden, listening to old and new music.
