I am originally from Istanbul and have lived in London for 16 years. I have been working as carer over the past 11 years, including as a live in carer. My clients have had a range of support needs including physical disabilities, and I have worked with elderly people at different stages of dementia. In these roles I have provided companionship, supported people with involvement in social activities, and provided personal care. Where required I have also been responsible for cooking for and feeding clients.
I have a caring and calm approach and am able to respond to the interests and individual needs of my clients. I have a good sense of humour and am a very good listener. These qualities and skills allow me to establish excellent relationships with the people for whom I am caring. My professionalism and discretion have often been complimented by clients and their families. My aim is always to help provide a stimulating and positive environment for my clients.
In my spare time I enjoy reading, and visiting museums and galleries. I am also very interested in current affairs. I am available on weekdays, Saturday morning, and Sunday afternoons. I am open to overnight shifts, but have limited availability for those. Please do not hesitate to contact me so that we can discuss your needs.
