My experience has taken me to several different care settings from nursing homes, live in care, and residential care. Further to this work experience I am trained in Dementia awareness, Depression, Health and Safety in the Kitchen, Safe Guarding vulnerable adults and children, Fraud Detection, Medication, First Aid and have a certificate in Counselling Skills. I have extensive experience caring for people with Dementia, Multiple Sclerosis, Behavioral Issues, Depression, and Palliative Care. My approach to care is person centred. Companionship and friendship are essential qualities for building trust and familiarity with my clients. The safety and wellbeing of whom I care for is a top priority. These values I hold have allowed me to build fantastic relationships with the family's and people whom I've cared for. I am an upbeat person who loves to live life with a smile on my face. I love all things creative and holistic and enjoy sharing these ideas and activities where possible with my clients. I'm passionate about this world and exploring different cultures. I care deeply about current affairs and how they affect society. My interests cultivate the spiritual outlook I have on life, and I enjoy attending my local church and also like to attend worship with the quakers when possible. My mother tongue is English and as such I speak, read and write fluent English. I am computer literate and have excellent communication and time keeping skills. I understand that it has become increasingly harder to find carers to care for your loved ones. The thought of having many faces come and go through the door is a daunting thought. Private Care can ensure that your loved one is building a repour with their carer and a familiarity which puts them and yourself at ease.

EX20 2NW 192811 Hello I would like to introduce myself, my name is Anna. I've been a carer for more than 10 years. I would describe myself as a kind, patient, conscientious and caring individual. I enjoy working closely with the elderly and others in need. I consider it a privilege and a joy to contribute to the happiness of others. I have extensive experience in all aspects of personal care, I enjoy cooking and have excellent organisational skills. I've taken clients shopping, to meet friends, trips outs, clubs and any excursions the clients wishes. I have a full UK clean driving licence. I love being outdoors, enjoy all aspects of nature, I like to swim, walk and I am fit and healthy. I love gardening, growing vegetables and cooking healthy and nutritious foods. I became a carer as I felt a strong affinity for others who cannot care for themselves and I am naturally a compassionate, empathetic person. Feel free to get in contact with me and I will reply asap. Thank you. 2 1 {"field_week_day_first":1,"field_is_available_first":true,"field_care_type_first":"3","field_week_day_second":2,"field_is_available_second":true,"field_care_type_second":"3","field_week_day_third":3,"field_is_available_third":true,"field_care_type_third":"3","field_week_day_fourth":4,"field_is_available_fourth":true,"field_care_type_fourth":"3","field_week_day_fifth":5,"field_is_available_fifth":true,"field_care_type_fifth":"3","field_week_day_sixth":6,"field_is_available_six":true,"field_care_type_sixth":"3","field_week_day_seven":7,"field_is_available_seven":true,"field_care_type_seven":"3"}

EX39 1LD 68102 Thank you for visiting my profile. Please note I don’t have availability in 2024. I pride myself on delivering care to the highest possible standard, allowing my clients to live independently in their own homes. With over 5 years of continuous experience within the care industry, there's no situation I haven't come across before. I have a true client-centric approach and care for all my clients in the same way I would want someone to care for me. I'm well-versed in toileting assistance, personal care, manual handling and daily administrative tasks such as dressing, oral hygiene and driving my clients to meet their appointments, organising diaries for social events. The field I contribute the most is dementia care due to my high emotional intelligence, gentle personality and empathy. I know the real difference that quality care can make to someone suffering from such a condition. I also have a photographer qualification and over 8 years of sales experience within the engineering industry. With a second love of photography and sport, when not caring for my client’s I can be found taking photos or surfing and doing costal walks. I also love to travel, with an extended circle of American friends, I often vacation over the pond, stopping off somewhere exotic on the way. And when not doing any of that, you will likely find me with a good book in my hand. I also consider myself a good cook and I’m into healthy eating and life-style. I believe I have a great sense of humour and a positive attitude towards everything in my life. I see myself as a good listener. I hold valid training certificates of First Aid and Basic Life Support, Medication Administration, Move and Assist Safely. References and DBS are available upon request. I'm also fully vaccinated. {"field_week_day_first":1,"field_is_available_first":"0","field_care_type_first":null,"field_week_day_second":2,"field_is_available_second":"0","field_care_type_second":null,"field_week_day_third":3,"field_is_available_third":"0","field_care_type_third":null,"field_week_day_fourth":4,"field_is_available_fourth":"0","field_care_type_fourth":null,"field_week_day_fifth":5,"field_is_available_fifth":"0","field_care_type_fifth":null,"field_week_day_sixth":6,"field_is_available_six":"0","field_care_type_sixth":null,"field_week_day_seven":7,"field_is_available_seven":"0","field_care_type_seven":null}
