Expertise

I enjoy meeting people and building a rapore, helping people to get the most out of their time with me. I have experience of being a Secretary in London in the past (including administration and PC skills). I love arts and crafts, previously ran a stall at Greenwich Market. I have an interest in gardening, wildlife and nature. I love animals and have always had them in my life. I also enjoy music and dancing. I enjoy a good natter and love bringing colour into someone's life.

Experience

I have been supporting my dad since my mum passed away in 2004 as his health deteriorated up to his admission into a lovely nursing home. As with my dad, I have always thought it is important that people enjoy time together, and are happy with the support offered. It is important that client's can live at home with dignity and be encouraged to be as independent as possible. Interventions driven by the client's and family members and carers.
PA Accredited with Support With Confidence, Public Liability Insurance and DBS checked.
