PO21 4RQ 194453 Hi and welcome to my profile! I have 20 years+ varied experience in the nursing/care health industry. I am passionate about my job and the people I care for and I give professional, skilled and compassionate care I have both nursing and caring experience so comfortable to carry out multiple tasks; companionship, cooking, gardening, transport to hospital/GP/health appointments and outings, grooming, personal care, medication, PEG feeding, catheter care and more. I have looked after people with various conditions including, general elderly care, palliative care, cancers, dementia, stroke, MND/MS, autism/ADHD, arthritis, incontinence, moving and handling needs, learning disabilities, diabetes and more. I offer hourly care, overnight care and respite care, Monday-Fri and occasional weekends. Would also consider live-in care on a respite basis if needed. I grew up with a sibling that has autism/ADHD/torettes and I started having an interest in the care industry at a very young age and have carried on since then. I love being able to give quality care to people in the comfort of their own home and enable people to live their lives as independent as possible. I believe every person should be able to live their life to the fullest no matter what we need help with throughout our lives. I love the outdoors and gardening, walking and hiking. Have a camera and trying to learn about photography in my spare time and voluntary dog/cat sitting/walking when I can. I like reading a book, cooking, baking, arts and crafts, music, movies, just spending time with friends and family and go for days out. Please get in touch if you think I am the right person for your care needs. I would love to hear from you. 2 0 {"field_week_day_first":1,"field_is_available_first":false,"field_care_type_first":"","field_week_day_second":2,"field_is_available_second":false,"field_care_type_second":"","field_week_day_third":3,"field_is_available_third":false,"field_care_type_third":"","field_week_day_fourth":4,"field_is_available_fourth":false,"field_care_type_fourth":"","field_week_day_fifth":5,"field_is_available_fifth":false,"field_care_type_fifth":"","field_week_day_sixth":6,"field_is_available_six":false,"field_care_type_sixth":"","field_week_day_seven":7,"field_is_available_seven":false,"field_care_type_seven":""}

I'd describe myself as an incidental, yet qualified carer, my forte is the facilitative end of the care spectrum. My background is actually in developing health services and treatment packages, also training professionals, but I filled in as informal carer for a friend's son, later ran the care packages for my elderly parents and more recently did a couple of years of agency and private care, often on a live-in basis. I am a member of The National Association of Care and Support Workers and follow their national code, as a grounded, principled way of working: Working with Skill & Competence A Commitment to Personal Growth & Development Working with Integrity & Respect for the Law A Commitment to Respect & Dignity I have: • A positive, mindful and kind nature • Dedication to the job • An understanding that everyone is different, hence with different care needs • Patience • Punctuality • Good conversational and communication skills • Initiative • Good listening skills • Ability to follow direction • Full driving licence – clear DBS A host of additional people and health and care related skills around planning, delivery of care and supporting/motivating clients. I provide "fundamentals", as below, yet frequently find myself in more facilitative roles, often involving clients' changing circumstances, I also work on projects with a disabilities consultant and have a therapy/coaching background so am well placed in this regard. I can provide: • Help with personal care tasks including; washing, dressing, toileting, changing pads • Preparing meals/Feeding • Dispensing medication • Household tasks such as cleaning, laundry or gardening • Help with shopping • Assistance to attend college or work • Driving (a wide range of adapated vehicles, I persionally own/drive a 5 tonne wav) • Helping a person to participate in hobbies or holidays. • Assisting with paying bills or other household management • Helping gain access to a doctor, dentist or hospital appointment • Random facilitation - e.g. configuring a new computer or mobility aid RECENT REFRESHER TRAINING • Dementia Awareness • End of Life • Equality, Diversity and Inclusion • Falls Awareness • Fire Safety • First Aid • Food Hygiene • Hand Hygiene • Health and Safety • Infection Control • Lone Working • Manual Handling of Objects • Medication Safety • Mental Capacity Act and DOLS • Moving and Handling • Nutrition and Hydration • Person Centred Care • Safeguarding Adults I also produce immersive media (vr) and have projects in the health and disabilities/assistive technology fields, ongoing direct client work directly informs this. 0 0 {"field_week_day_first":1,"field_is_available_first":false,"field_care_type_first":"","field_week_day_second":2,"field_is_available_second":false,"field_care_type_second":"","field_week_day_third":3,"field_is_available_third":false,"field_care_type_third":"","field_week_day_fourth":4,"field_is_available_fourth":false,"field_care_type_fourth":"","field_week_day_fifth":5,"field_is_available_fifth":true,"field_care_type_fifth":"4, 5","field_week_day_sixth":6,"field_is_available_six":true,"field_care_type_sixth":"4, 5","field_week_day_seven":7,"field_is_available_seven":true,"field_care_type_seven":"4, 5"}

BN16 2SP 78972 I am patient, compassionate, a good listener and enjoy working closely with others especially vulnerable people. After I cared for my 91years old dad who had a heart condition, was diabetic and had a suprapubic catheter, I arranged for his monthly check up with his doctor and accompanied him for the visits, I realized my passion for caring for both the elderly and vulnerable people heightened. This led me into a different career of care from my engineering background. I realized my passion for care superseded that of engineering. My short journey into the care career has left me more fulfilled and satisfied, where I enjoy helping my clients feel satisfied with their lives daily. I have worked for 9 months in the UK with clients with dementia, stroke recovery, bed care, hospital recovery as a live in Carer. I can assist them with personal hygiene, dressing, cooking, light house hold chores and cleaning, companionship, shopping, administrative tasks which needs support, walking their pets, using moving and handling equipment. At my spare time I enjoy sports with my sports lover clients especially football, even though I have no clubs I support, I also like to try out new recipes from cool books, as cooking has been a family tradition for decades since my mum ran one for decades. I enjoy cooking competitions programs and quiz competitions on tv also. I also like to play chess and scrabble games. false

PO18 8QT 47831 I have been a Healthcare Assistant with an NHS Trust for the 17 years, both within Psychiatric Intensive Care, Forensic and Dementia Assessment Units, as well as providing cover for Residential support and Adult Acute wards. Within this time, I have dealt with many aspects of challenging behaviour and have been privileged to be involved with many service user's paths to recovery. I have looked after people with substance abuse issues and clients with Schizophrenia, depression and many other mental health diagnoses. My most recent position, working with acute dementia patients has been by far the most rewarding of my time in mental health care and has given me a greater knowledge base in physical care. I have 1 year's experience in live-in home care, during which, I had extensive experience in dealing with palliative care. During my time working for the Trust, I have been part of the team which was key in implementing the Care Zoning Process which was introduced Trust-wide before being presented in America, and have developed an interest in therapeutic interventions, such as helping clients achieve an understanding of their daily living skills, an understanding of a healthy diet, and helping them to recognise and develop any skills or interests they have beyond this. It's important to me that a service user recognise they have an identity that surpasses the sum of their mental or physical health diagnosis and helping them to embrace this can have a positive impact on helping them to achieve and maintain social inclusion. I consider myself a valued member of the team and, have always been able to slot in well on all the wards I have worked on, and whilst I have no desire to embark on my nursing training, I consider the post of Healthcare worker a valuable position in it’s own right. My strengths in working with one-to-one care, my close collaborations with the Occupational Therapy Department, and my ability to think on my feet, are traits that I am well known for. I have a natural passion for care, am compassionate toward my clients and have a calming personality for managing a client's agitation or anxiety. My experience, over the years, has led me to recognise the Live-in Care would be an ideal progression in which to fully implement the skills I have developed during my time working in the NHS. Having a close-knit family myself, I also recognise the value of home care in enabling the client to preserve the home life they richly deserve rather than having to face the upheaval of a residential home or long term hospital admission. Outside of work I have an avid interest in travel. I am an independent backpacker and try to travel at least once a year, as I enjoy experiencing the culture and often find that travelling 'off the beaten track' introduces basic challenges and experiences that a package holiday often will not. I feel that getting back to basics often provides me with a healthy and liberating balance away from work. I also occasionally work as a portrait artist but have not to date pursued this fully as I find my work in care far more rewarding, but still enjoy my creative pursuits on a personal level. I hope this statement gives an idea of both myself as a carer and who I am on a personal level, and I would be more than happy to expand on this further if I am considered as a candidate for this position. Thank you for taking the time to read this, Karen {"field_week_day_first":1,"field_is_available_first":false,"field_care_type_first":"","field_week_day_second":2,"field_is_available_second":false,"field_care_type_second":"","field_week_day_third":3,"field_is_available_third":false,"field_care_type_third":"","field_week_day_fourth":4,"field_is_available_fourth":false,"field_care_type_fourth":"","field_week_day_fifth":5,"field_is_available_fifth":false,"field_care_type_fifth":"","field_week_day_sixth":6,"field_is_available_six":false,"field_care_type_sixth":"","field_week_day_seven":7,"field_is_available_seven":false,"field_care_type_seven":""}
