Experience

I am a married mother of three grown up children and have lived in this area for most of my life.
I enjoy the countryside and especially walks up on the forest with my rather large labradoodle, Barney.
I like to be active and enjoy sports and healthy living but also enjoy being at home with family and friends and will do jigsaws, play games and cook in my leisure time.

I have worked in residential and the community with people with learning disabilities for many years and have also worked in a special needs school and adult day services.
I have worked in a nursing home and in the community in a variety of roles but essentially in caring and support environments.

Someone’s independence is a key and important value to me and helping people to live as independently as possible in their own homes is essential to a happy life
I love to chat and hear all about everything and anything and get to know my clients really well. It is important to me to form a trusting and close relationship with the client.
I am very easy going, flexible in what I can offer and open to learning new skills if required.

I have been doubled vaccinated for COVID19

Background

Originally trained as a registered (RNMH) nurse and worked at a Southampton hospital.

I have continued my development by completing training throughout my working history in key areas required for the role
