I have worked as a carer within the community for the last 3 years, having on the whole an established round visiting clients with a variety of conditions. I have also nursed two relatives with terminal illness at home so understand the dedication and care that goes into that.
I'm practical, efficient, empathetic and sensitive to the clients' needs on all levels. I always make sure the client is comfortable and feels very well taken care of. I work to encourage a rapport if the client is open to this.
I love animals and have a dog who has often accompanied me in care work at the clients' requests. I love walking locally on the Downs with my dog, reading, gardening and have a lifelong interest in health and nutrition.
I'm looking for part time work mainly but also available to do live in, respite and day/night care providing I can bring my dog.
I would be happy to listen to your care needs first and negotiate.
