I consider myself as a compassionate, empathetic, respectful person and have many life experiences that have led me to want to care for others.

I have and still work as a self employed befriended/carer with a number of clients with Alzheimers for the past 6 years. My roles have included managing other carers, rota creation, making and accompanying clients to healthcare appointments, discussing and reporting concerns and issues with family members as well as doctors and hospital staff, escorting clients to events, shopping trips as well as forming strong and trusting relationships with clients - working to establish respect and emotional wellbeing at all times.

I'm a single mother of two teenage daughters. I have a wide variety of interests including painting, drawing and cycling. At the moment I have limited availability, but please feel free to message me and I will try to accommodate your needs.
