I have worked in a nursing home for 1 year however mostly in live-in care situations for the past 4 years, generally caring for the elderly for periods of time up to 3 months without a break. I have had experience with dementia, stroke, diabetes, learning disabilities, Parkinson and spinal injury among others. My experience in the field has exposed me to equipment such as the oxygen machine, peg feeder, mobile hoist, ceiling hoist, banana board, rotunda, sliding sheets, and a blood glucose level monitoring device among others.
The most useful quality I have as a carer is my ability to organise tasks and flexibility that allows me to observe clients and adjust myself to suit the type of care they need.
When I'm not working I like to play chess, watch football and tennis. I also enjoy going out and seeing sites, walking in the park and eating out.Thank you for viewing my profile.
I'm looking for live in care and available from the 22nd November.
