I've been working as a live in carer for 3 years with various clients both in Portugal and the UK. Mainly I cared for single elderly individuals with Alzheimer's and other types of severe dementia. I was helping out my clients with moving and handling, washing, bedding, cooking, prompting their medication and exercising which I find very important. I've also been working as a cruise/tour manager with middle age/elderly groups. Both jobs required punctuality, responsibility, attention and caring.

I believe the experience, the diplomacy, the respect for elderly make me a good carer. Besides all that, I'm very sensible to other's feelings, tastes and wishes.

I'm a happy and funny person in general who likes to smile. I enjoy reading, singing, dancing, walking, relaxing, or going to the gym and doing yoga. I also like small pets, travelling, art, culture, films and cooking.

I'm looking for a live in carer job where I can make a positive difference in my client's life and help her/him to live independently and keep her dignity.

My availability is working on a rota of 2-3 weeks on and 2 weeks off. I'm only available from June due to a commitment but please feel free to message me beforehand so we can discuss your needs.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Carmo has played an outstanding and very important role in our family. Not only has she cared superbly for my father, she has also looked after my mother (which is never an easy job) and supported the family through what has been a very difficult time. As if that were not enough, she has, out of the goodness of her heart, managed all of the household duties single-handed. I have never seen mum's house look so clean and well organised. This was not her task, but she has done all of this under very difficult conditions and has remained positive, happy and supportive throughout. I will be sorry to lose Carmo's services next week but our situation has now changed so we all move on. Wherever Carmo will be working next will be a lucky person or family. I am so grateful to her for her dedication to my father and for her wider support of everyone involved. Exceptional work such as this deserves recognition, so I am very happy to write this review and recommend her to others!
