Expertise

In addition to my nursing background, I am also very experienced in providing a range of care and support for adults to help them lead more independent and fuller lives. I am also providing increasing levels of respite care to both family members and live In carers.
I am very observant and adaptable to the changing needs of my clients and can offer as much, or as little assistance as required and at the times my clients need it.
Away from work, I am quite experienced in both Eastern and Western cuisine and love to bake bread and cakes. I also enjoy gardening and help to maintain the grounds and memorial garden of my local church.

Experience

I moved to England from the Philippines in 2002 and spent many years working within NHS Wards and Outpatients’ Clinics nursing people with a wide range of medical conditions. This included Dementia and Alzheimer's, MS, post-surgery and end of life care. I also cared for both my own parents and in-laws in their later years.
It is from these experiences, as well as from deep within my own culture, that I truly appreciate the importance of looking after our loved ones and why I enjoy caring for people so much. Not least, because of the great sense of security and comfort that living at home can bring to those we care for. The same feelings and basic needs, I think we all have really.
I have enormous respect for the senior members of our community and I love listening to and learning from their many life’s stories and experiences. I also love my job and have a natural passion to care for people. I am very gentle and polite by nature, patient and understanding as well as trustworthy and reliable. And being a Filipino, I’m very friendly and jolly too!

Background

I qualified originally in Midwifery at Pines City Doctors Hospital, Baguio, Philippines, before entering the nursing profession, like my two sisters did before me. I then spent the next 20 years in both the nursing and care sectors.
