Speaks English

I have been a carer for the past ten years. I am experienced in working with people with learning disabilities, mental health problems, dementia and the elderly. Before working in domiciliary care, I have worked in a hospital as a health care assistant. In my current job, I help my clients to do what they cannot do for themselves and at the same time encourage them to live independently. My duties include supporting with toileting, bathing, dressing up, feeding, administration of medication, helping with getting in and out of bed, and taking my clients to go out in the community or to hospital appointments. I also help out with general house chores.

I am a natural carer who is keen to make a difference in peoples’ lives. I have good communication skills and I am very observant which helps to spot changes in clients.

In my spare time, I go out socialising with my close friends and I really enjoy playing games. If you like my profile, feel free to send me a message and we can discuss your needs; I am available to work anytime Monday to Saturday.
