Expertise

I have always had a love of animals and the outdoors, been very fortunate in my family loaning me a pony to care and be responsible for, along with a variety of other animals over the years.
I have grown up having many days out to a range of gardens and historical places, as well as air and garden shows with my family.
I enjoy baking and being creative and having a go at different forms of craft making and up-cycling, making use of things that would otherwise been thrown away.
I have always liked my space to be clean and tidy and actually enjoy a good sort and clear out from time to time.
I have family across the country and spent 3 years living in France caring for my father in law, which has led to us travelling about a lot, so I am a confident driver who also enjoys driving to places and seeing new things.

Experience

I have had the pleasure of working with a variety of clients of all ages with various needs and diagnosis. I have experience in supporting clients living with Dementia, Parkinson's and Stroke rehabilitation.
I enjoy supporting clients in identifying what is meaningful to them and create, promote and maintain a positive relationship with clients, carers, families, GP’s and other health professionals.
My aim is to maximise and promote independence, integrity, dignity, inclusion and support within the local community.
I have experience of working in Care Homes and Hospitals and also customer facing services, such as 8 years working in a coffee shop and hair salon.
In my personal time, I have enjoyed up-cycling furniture and have spent a few years being part of many vintage fairs with my parents, spending weekends putting together a pop up shop and selling our goods to the public.
I also take great pleasure in my garden, growing anything from pretty flower beds to tending my home garden allotment, full of vegetables, herbs and fruits.
Over the years I have kept and cared for many animals raging from chickens, ducks and geese, to loaning a pony and having a pig and ferrets and a cat.
There is always plenty to learn in life, but have always been happy to have a go or get stuck in and learn more, which has given me a broad knowledge in a multitude of activities.
I enjoy visiting gardens, historical grounds and museums or just being out in nature.

Background

In my earlier years, I worked as a care assistant in a residential home until I went on to train to become a Auxilliary Nurse at the Conquest Hospital. I then left care and went on to work in a Coffee shop and worked at St Marys School for children with behavoural and learning difficulties.
After having my 2 children and them both starting there school life, I returned back to caring in the community at a Domicilliary Agency.
Having wanted to be more flexible and able to assist clients with their own requirements and time necessaties, I then become a self employed Personal Assistant and have been supporting one of my clients for the past 2 years.
