I've been working with People, for People, in different ways, all my life: 10 years spent teaching in higher education, and the past 6 years were continuously dedicated to caring for elderly people with complex needs. I’ve chosen to work in care for the Human and Humane experience of it, as it enriches my soul as much as it saves or brightens the life of the person in need.
I am an experienced, compassionate and empathetic carer, with a mature, responsible approach and a can-do, positive attitude (combined with a good sense of humour), patient, resilient, with lots of inner-strength, and proved to excel in providing the desired physical and psychological comfort to my clients.
Working as a carer requires empathy, communication skills, patience and kindness, and these come naturally to me. Couldn’t have been any other way, as I was raised in the spirit of caring for human beings, my parents being doctors
The principles that always guide my work are: Honesty, trust, respect and care for the person I work for. Also, good communication and listening to the person's needs, likes, dislikes, and requirements, with keen attention to godly details that at times, can make all the difference.
Whilst using my analytical thinking, experience and initiative, all is being done Your Way, with the utmost respect for your preferences, private space and independence. Above and beyond, I think it is all summarized under the umbrella of Human and Humane Common Sense, and this has always been my main and ultimate Credo, in my personal and professional life.
But now, it's time for me to silence, make a cup of tea and listen to your needs ...hoping that I could help.
Mainly, I prefer long hours day care, Monday to Friday
