Please note that I can't take further jobs at the moment due to my commitments.

I have over 20 years experience working as a nurse with all kinds of diseases, mainly Lewy body dementia and Parkinson's. I've been working in care homes, residential homes and also in hospitals. My duties included prompting medication, doing personal care, catheter and wound care.

I love getting to know people. I generally think the key is treating people with respect and listening to them as everyone has a story to tell.

In my free time I love being a tourist in my own city and exploring the museums and galleries, cooking (vegetarian, vegan, traditional, gluten and dairy free meals too), gardening, politics, current affairs and reading.

I'm looking for day care roles. I am happy to provide personal care, housekeeping, gardening and looking after pets. Please get in touch if you are interested in working with me.
