I first started providing private care when my nan fell ill, I was her main carer, I enjoyed it very much and my nan encouraged me to sign up with an agency. Since then, I have worked for numerous domiciliary agencies, nursing homes, residential homes, mental health homes, in schools and live-in companies. Throughout the years, I have experience with personal care, moving and handling, feeding, washing and dressing, changing pads, using health-care equipment, prompting and administrating medications (tablets and liquids), companionship, cooking fresh meals and light cleaning. Also, going out with my clients, accompanying them to the doctors and hospital appointments. Doing their general shopping and run errands for my clients like picking up medications from the pharmacy. I have experience with clients who have suffered from dementia and cancer. Including clients with challenging behaviour. I've also provided care for clients who had Parkinson's Disease, brain disease, bed-bound patients, end of life and palliative care. I love my role as a carer and I understand my duties. I work with dependent people who rely on me for support. I don't see myself doing anything else. I do enjoy listening to my clients life stories - growing up, how they lived and all their amazing stories. I am confident in my role as a carer and I know each client is different. I hope with all my experience you will accept me as your carer. In my own time I enjoy walking and taking in the local scenery. I am a Born Again Christian - when I'm not working my husband and I do God's work. 1 1 {"field_week_day_first":1,"field_is_available_first":true,"field_care_type_first":"1, 4, 5, 3","field_week_day_second":2,"field_is_available_second":true,"field_care_type_second":"1, 4, 5, 3","field_week_day_third":3,"field_is_available_third":true,"field_care_type_third":"1, 4, 5, 3","field_week_day_fourth":4,"field_is_available_fourth":true,"field_care_type_fourth":"1, 4, 5, 3","field_week_day_fifth":5,"field_is_available_fifth":true,"field_care_type_fifth":"1, 4, 5, 3","field_week_day_sixth":6,"field_is_available_six":true,"field_care_type_sixth":"1, 4, 5, 3","field_week_day_seven":7,"field_is_available_seven":true,"field_care_type_seven":"1, 4, 5, 3"}

Please supply an email address in the messaging system & a detailed CV will be sent. If I was going to trust a stranger with my Dad I would want full checked background, so my detailed CV is designed to do this, in addition to all the checks carried out by Curam care, together with the numerous other care agencies I’m registered with. Ref 1. An agency ...proved himself to be extremely responsible and reliable and has taken great care of his clients and their homes. He always goes the extra mile and makes sure he keeps abreast of training and research in order to best support his clients. Charles’ military background is evident in his attention to detail and excellent standard of housekeeping. From the outset, Charles has been an exemplary employee and deservedly has won ‘employee of the month and year’ on a couple of occasions. I have no hesitation in recommending Charles for any care opportunities that require a reliable, trustworthy, safe pair of hands. Ref 2. Family... a registered nursing sister Charles has been the live in PA, house manager, carer & chauffeur for my Father for 5 years until Dad's recent death. He has been utterly brilliant, caring for Dad with the utmost of sensitivity and careful handling as the Parkinson's disease and dementia took hold. Significant reductions in costs, staff longevity and a noticeable improvement in Dad’s diet, mobility, health and state-of-mind resulted from Charles’ friendly yet professional dedication & attention to detail. He was totally reliable and utterly trustworthy at all times, taking over vehicle procurement & maintenance, managing the home, staff, gardeners, contractors & generally keeping Dad happy & safe in every possible respect. He was enthusiastic and motivational for Dad, as was appropriate as understands & fits into high net worth refined homes. Dad always looked so well cared for and smart and dignified, all Charles' doing. As from the same background Charles became part of the family. He never once let us down during the entire time he was with Dad, and there were many very difficult times as the Dementia advanced. Due to his extensive corporate experience he is always keen to liaise and communicate with the team and the family, at all times putting the client's best health and financial interests first. Ref 3. Business... …having worked as Training Manager of our parent company in the UK for over 10 years. He was promoted to Sales Manager after 4 months. This was then effectively branch manager. Charles took over my position in Cape Town as ... made me the Sales Director in Johannesburg head office. I therefore had integral knowledge of the Cape Town operation and was confident Charles would make a smooth transition as on my many visits to the UK we worked together, sharing his considerable technical knowledge "Leading from the front". I got to know him & his lovely wife Jilly well over the years, suggested & motivated his return home so I could take up my promotion to head office. My confidence was well rewarded. Charles during his time with ... always conducted himself in the most professional manner. After settling in, he regularly exceeded the branch sales/profitability targets & was well liked by his peers & clients, substantially growing our business presence. His sense of humour mixed with his drive and not always gentle when required, yet always effective staff management skills, great persistence, business ethics & knowledge base, blended with energy & integrity were badly missed. Charles left us to start his own business in another field. On behalf of all the good friends he & Jilly made during his time with us, past & present, we wish him the very best in his future endeavours. Ref 4. Holiday fill in carer. Wife of client ... He became an integral part of the family coming to stay and help for three weeks at a time and later returning, while other carers took his place. This continued from about 2009 over two years. It was a good solution for the continuing care of my husband. Charles was an easy person to have in the house, and provided a lot of light hearted fun in what might have been a grim time for us, and he was always ready to go the extra mile ~ for example with his help we managed to give my husband several lovely swims in our pool which would not have been possible with other carers. It was particularly good for my husband to have another male around from the same background who understood the required etiquette in the management of our home. Charles is a compassionate man and totally honest. He could be left alone as he could manage a variety of excellent basic meals. He could turn his hand to almost anything else required including any odd jobs, DIY & projects etc. He managed my husband’s personal care with great dignity and exceptional care in very trying times. 1 2 {"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":true,"field_care_type_sixth":"3","field_week_day_seven":7,"field_is_available_seven":true,"field_care_type_seven":"3"}

SA18 1ND 252812 With over ten years of extensive care experience, beginning my journey in 2015 as a live-in carer, I am confident in my ability to provide compassionate and dedicated support to those in need. Throughout my career, I have worked in diverse settings, including supported living, with young people in care, psychiatric hospitals, and various live-in care roles. My passion lies in working with the elderly in their homes, where I thrive in promoting their independence and enhancing their overall quality of life. My responsibilities encompass a wide range of tasks, from assisting with day-to-day activities, meal planning, and preparation of healthy meals to grocery shopping and managing household affairs. I take pride in maintaining strong social connections for my clients, advocating for their needs with other professionals, and ensuring their care plans are individually tailored to promote their health and well-being. Respecting privacy and dignity is paramount to me, reflected in my approach to personal care and ensuring homes are secure and free from harm. I consistently update care plans and risk assessments, perform light housekeeping to minimize risks, and prioritize ongoing professional development to stay current in the field. Understanding the importance of manual handling, I am committed to supporting clients in achieving their goals and independence within the community. My adept communication skills enable me to connect with clients on both physical and emotional levels, fostering a supportive and trusting environment. As a night worker, I recognize the significance of maintaining a safe home environment, conducting thorough checks, and providing timely support when needed. I am meticulous in report writing and efficient in sharing relevant information during handovers. Moreover, I am well-versed in confidentiality practices, equality principles, and the importance of respecting the individuality and choices of each client. On my weeks off from live-in care rotations, I am open to considering sleeping nights, providing additional support for those in need. One of my passions is travel, and I am excited about the prospect of combining caregiving with being a travel companion. I am open to any live-in care position with varying rotas, adapting to the unique needs and wishes of each client. In terms of travel costs, I kindly request the client to cover the return train journey. Furthermore, for daily breaks during live-in care placements, I am flexible with what the client can offer. Whether it's daily breaks or consolidated breaks taken when convenient for the client, I am adaptable to ensure a harmonious caregiving experience. I am confident that my skills and dedication align with the values of health & social care of this country, and I am eager to contribute to the well-being of those under my care. 1 1 {"field_week_day_first":1,"field_is_available_first":true,"field_care_type_first":"4, 3","field_week_day_second":2,"field_is_available_second":true,"field_care_type_second":"4, 3","field_week_day_third":3,"field_is_available_third":true,"field_care_type_third":"4, 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"}

Sa16de 34460 Hello Thankyou very much for looking at my profile. Working within a caring role has simply been such a rewarding experience for me. I have been described by my clients as having a natural and easy manner and warm and friendly personality. I try to create a relaxed environment and have a good sense of humour. I am the proud mother of 2 beautiful daughters and 2 adorable grandchildren. I am a sincere Buddhist practitioner and live within a Buddhist community. In the past I have worked within a hospital environment, nursing and care homes and over 10 years as a live-in carer. During the last 2 years my experience has been varied and spans between a companionship role, working with people with varying degrees and types of dementia to 'end of life' care. I am educated to a university level in Humanities, have a foundation diploma in Art, studied for 2 years on a teacher training course in Dru Yoga and have experience in Co- Councilling. I have been practising in Stroud as a self-employed Theraputic Massage and Alternative Therapist for over 25 years. I recently qualified as a Clinical Hypnotherapist. I regularly visit my hometown in Stroud as my daughter recently moved back with her partner and children. I am very interested in the Arts, sustainable living and maintaining a healthy body and mind. I believe that my main strengths are that I am very compassionate, patient and reliable with the ability to adapt to most situations to suit my clients needs. I also have excellent communication skills. If you like my profile and have any further questions I would be very happy to discuss them with you. {"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}
