Please note, unfortunately I'm unable to accept any new clients before February 2018. I have over 5 years experience working as a carer. Over the years I have worked with clients with different illnesses like advanced Alzheimer's, dementia, stroke, epilepsy, brain injury, diabetes etc. I'm experienced with using the hoist, sliding sheets, administering medication, feeding clients, giving personal care, handling wheelchair, working with peg feed, bolus feeding and cleaning peg site.

I'm caring, patient, honest, punctual and respectful. I enjoy looking after people who are vulnerable. I am respectful, honest and have great attention to detail. I am also a computer science graduate from the University of Greenwich. My hobbies include sports, music and politics. I also enjoy watching sports and movies. I like to engage clients in conversation of their interest and also entertain them by taking them out.

My current availability is Tuesday, Friday and weekends but I am flexible about the other days, too so please feel free to message me if you are looking for a carer.

I have known Abdul since September 2015, he was my husband's carer for the last 10 months of his life. Abdul, when he was on duty, looked after all my husband's needs, which he did with extreme kindness and consideration at all times. He was always punctual and reliable. I can highly recommend him in whatever capacity you would employ him.
