Expertise

Support with independent living for the elderly and those with a disability. Support given through social engagement and companionship, attending appointments with client, and with accessing the community. I can also assist with paperwork and de-cluttering. I have experience in encouraging clients to discuss life stories and experiences (perhaps to compile memoirs), to engage in their own creative projects and to pursue hobbies and interests.

Experience

I have many years of experience working as a Personal Assistant; supporting people to live independently. I have worked with elderly clients and those with a disability; providing assistance with domestic duties, giving companionship, taking to appointments and social outings, support with medication and personal care. I have also given support and guidance to those compiling memoirs (photographs and stories), paperwork and domestic accounts, and assisting with ICT (internet and word processing). I use both my professional knowledge and expertise, together with my personal skills of compassion, patience, humour and flexibility to work with a person-centred approach.

Background

I have 30 years of working in both the public and private sectors, in the caring and service industries. I have also been employed as an Occupational Therapy Assistant supporting clients to regain skills and return to independent living. I have completed the East Sussex County Council Support with Confidence PA Training and those of First Aid, Food Hygiene, Medication training, Moving & Handling, Safeguarding Adults, Mental Health Awareness and Falls Prevention. I hold an NVQ Level 3 Diploma in Health & Social Care. Qualifications also in Administration, Typing & Proofreading, Art & Design. I am fully insured – Public Liability and Business car insurance.
