I am a 40 year old Turkish from Istanbul. I have been living in North London for 15 years and have done a lot of domestic work including working as a domiciliary carer. I have nine years of care experience, in particular in elderly care & companionship. Until recently I have worked for agencies however I prefer working on a private basis. This is why I have just joined HomeTouch.
I studied at university in Istanbul, Turkey and have a degree from the Faculty of Communication. I also have a Master degree in Cultural Studies. I have NVQ Level 2 in social care and health and hold all care related certificates including Manual Handling, Alzheimers Care, First Aid, Medication Handling, Care Skills etc.
I been working for years for the elderly with Dementia particularly those with Alzheimers, but I also have experience in disability care and caring for young people and have provided personal care and companionship.
I'm a literate person and have a lot of interests, keen on reading, keep an eye on news, current affairs, social history, art and culture. In my spare time I like to go to museums and galleries. I get on very well with the elderly, I enjoy listening to them, I see my job as an opportunity to understand others. I quite value sharing the knowledge and life experiences.
I am also interested weekend care&companion.
