I have moved to London just over a year ago to study Medicine at Imperial College London, and am currently living in Croydon. I have worked in care for two years, working with clients in a residential setting helping with all aspects of daily life. I really enjoy helping my clients not only with daily tasks but also helping them to maintain and even gain new hobbies and interests, as I think that is really important. I have particular experience working with people with Downs Syndrome, Autism, Asperger's and Learning Difficulties, Dementia and Physical Disabilities. I enjoy exploring the outdoors, and spend quite a bit of time dog walking, and have two rabbits of my own who live in my house with me! At home I enjoy doing crafts and have recently learned how to crochet. I look forward to hearing from you.
