Speaks English

Hello my name is Catherine and I have trained as an Occupational Therapist and also worked as a care assistant and a nursing assistant.

I have a lot of experience in mental health having worked for 3 years on an acute psychiatric ward but also have experience of working with clients in their homes and have some experience of dementia.

I enjoy meeting new people and am friendly and reliable to work with.

I live in Hackney but am able to travel within a reasonable distance.

Catherine did some research on the type of dementia my husband has (rarer than Alzheimer's the person has odd behaviours relating to eating and drinking amongst other things). She is very supportive in her companionship and safeguarding. She is conscientious in her time keeping and, most importantly, my husband thinks she is 'nice'. I think she is a real asset to me keeping sane!
