Expertise

I love to cook and think that I am quite good at it although I always have to refer to a recipe as my experimental cooking is not always the best to taste. I am very keen and knowledgeable on nutrition and I understand the benefits of eating well. I have a huge fondness for dogs and love to gain their trust and give them the exercise they crave.

Experience

I have over 25 years’ experience of working in the Care sector, from Mental Health, Care in the Community, Nursing Homes and Group Homes, but predominantly I have worked with the elderly and find this the most rewarding. I am comfortable with personal care and I am extremely interested in improving people’s lives. It is important for me to support 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 struggling with their nutritional needs, paperwork and domestic tasks, and assisting with ICT (internet and word processing). I use both my professional knowledge and expertise, together with my personal skills of compassion, patience and most importantly humour.

Background

I started my career in Mental Health and as a Support worker, this quickly developed and I worked in the community supporting people to regain skills and return to independent living, giving them the confidence to achieve their goals. Most recently I have been office based but also supporting clients with Direct Payments to set up their packages to recruit and to tackle the huge amounts of paperwork involved, also I assisted with the whole recruitment process such as compiling and placing adverts, interviewing the right candidates and set them up with HMRC to act as the employer.
I have always worked in a supporting role in the community and office based so can offer my client a vast amount of support in any stage of their life.
