Speaks Turkish, English

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.

Peri provided regular care for my husband who suffered from advanced dementia for over 5 years. She proved herself to be an excellent carer. Her professional yet warm approach enabled her to quickly develop an excellent relationship with my husband who grew to completely trust her. She is very competent and has a calm and warm personality. She was very successful in helping my husband engage in activities outside the home and coped with the most difficult situations with no complaint. She is an intelligent person with a wide range of interests and was also able to relate very well to my husband’s own interests to ensure she provided a stimulating environment for him. I would recommend her with total confidence.

Peri has been working for me for about four years now. I have no idea what I would have done without her precious help. She has made a significant difference in my life. She is one of the kindest and smartest carer I ever met as a service user. She is a capable individual with knowledge of anything you can imagine, a quick problem solver, trustworthy, and discreet. She acts professionally when a challenging situation occurs and she is friendly and a very loyal person. I would highly recommend her.
