Expertise

My many interests include current affairs and the weather after all there is always something to talk about!!!
I have two adorable big beautiful kittens who are constantly up to some kind of mischief!
I enjoy yoga, walking, running, marathon running, Parkrun, inspiring others to do the aforementioned activities whatever their age and whatever their level as more often than not I am participating with people who are much older than me anyway and they constantly inspire me.
Architecture, photography, art, crafts including mosaic, knitting, crochet, jewellery making (wire wrapping) sort furnishings, cake baking and latterly sour dough bread making and wedding cake making are all interests that I dip in and out of!
I also love attending the theatre and cinema, being a member of Ashridge Circle and the Film Society in Eastbourne, and exhibitions, visiting gardens and places of interest.

Experience

Empathetic and supportive person possessing excellent interpersonal skills, able to communicate effectively with a variety of people, understanding the need for diversity and confidentiality in the work place.
I have had 4 years’ experience of supporting my stepfather who has Alzheimer’s, supporting him with daily tasks including walking the dog, taking him out on cinema, theatre, and day trips, ensuring that he is engaging in activities and socialising. I have assisted with medication and some cooking and cleaning. I engage him in conversation and use effective listening skills and take an understanding and supportive approach. These activities give his full time carer some respite from her duties.
I am passionate about helping and supporting people to live independent lives and engage in positive activities to help them lead fulfilling lives in their own home.
I have also been a full time mother and understand the need for patience and understanding. I am flexible and adaptable and can put my hand to a variety of tasks and duties.

Background

My background work experience is in Administration for NHS, where I had some contact with patients on the telephone and face to face where I had to solve problems whilst offering reassurance and empathy for their situation and issues, so I have a good understanding of building professional relationships with doctors and other support agencies.
