I was born in Romania and have a medical background as I have worked in the pharmaceuitcals industry for 15 years. After moving to the UK in 2013 I spent the first year in residential care homes where I supported elderly and people with learning disabilities. Since 2014 I've been working as a live in carer in various locations in the UK. During these years I provided support for people with various needs or medical conditions including motor neuron disease, spinal injury, dementia, autistic disorder etc.
I have lots of patience, good observational and listening skills. Above these, the 4 years of experience in person-centred care taught me a lot - keeping the good balance between support for patient's health and safety whilst preserving his/her independence and freedom of choice. I like to cheer my clients up and of course help them whatever hobbies they have.
I love gardening, DIY, walks in the parks and talking to people. I enjoy learning new things, games and skills.
I am looking for long term placements, couple or individuals with any medical conditions and degree of support needed. I'm available from the 26th November.
