Previously I have been working in domiciliary as well as care homes for three years. Following that I gained experience as a live in carer for five years. The work has been mainly supporting elderly clients with MS, learning and physical disabilities like osteoporosis or advanced vascular dementia. The other clients in domiciliary and residential homes required support with different needs with Alzheimer's dementia, Parkinson's disease, brain injuries and palliative care.

I am dependable as well as adaptable, able to work unsupervised while maintaining a cheerful and compassionate attitude in all circumstances. I usually make my client's life easier by making them comfortable while assisting them with physical or mental needs. This can be done by patience, good listening skills or organising social activities like going to the church, community centres and visiting family or friends.

I enjoy walking, gardening, travelling and dancing to keep myself fit.

I'm looking for long term live in care opportunities, please get in touch if you are in need of a carer.
