Speaks English

I have worked as a carer for over 14 years. During these years I have worked in nursing homes, hospitals, home care, and I have also done live in care. I have experience working with clients with Dementia and Parkinson's. I have assisted with personal care, medication, preparation of meals, accompanying to hospital appointments, and general housework and shopping. I have also done administrative tasks, such as dealing with corresponence by email or telephone and filling out forms.

I am a good listener, very compassionate and I easily adapt to situations as they arise. I also am a fast learner and have good multi tasking skills. I always give as much time and concern to any task I have in hand.

In my free time I like to watch documentaries, cook, read, and go to the theatre and musicals. I am available for day and night care. Feel free to send me a message if you're interested and we can discuss your needs!

Having recently had to find a replacement carer, I cannot express how pleased I was to find Tendai living so close nearby and available to start immediately having just finished at her previous home. It is such a privilege to just take one look at an individual and just know, right from the start of a first meeting, that you have the right person. Tendai is the most warm, embracing, happy, cheerful, knowledgeable, professional and has just simply taken over as though there was no change or disruption in the required care. We needed care for a very elderly, confused, fragile lady in her 90s, who is extremely hard of hearing and not cooperative with meals at all. Tendai just automatically and naturally assessed the situation and knew exactly how to sympathetically discuss daily care requirements, which involve waking in the morning, assisting with getting in/out of bed, personal hygiene, dressing, daily medications/eye drops, meal preparation and general house cleaning, ironing, washing, hoovering etc. The client herself used to be a meticulous expert medical consultant for over 40 years of her life and I have not received one complaint regarding either of her HomeTouch carers. Tendai fits the bill perfectly, is just the most lovely character and deserves the highest of praise right from the first shift she started with us. I would honestly say you would be a fool not to choose Tendai as your carer. She is completely trustworthy, dedicated with years of experience in this field and I only hope she stays local so we don’t lose her!
