I have been involved in private care work for two years now. Before that I worked for the Ambulance Service NHS Trust for thirteen years, working on front-line emergency ambulances as an Emergency Care Assistant (ECA). Before that I worked as non-emergency ambulance crew for three years. During my ambulance career I encountered pretty much everything that can happen to a human being in life (and, unfortunately, death). My day-to-day role was being part of a front-line NHS emergency ambulance crew and responding to emergencies as needed. I attended everything from mental health crises, to life-threatening medical emergencies, to serious and fatal trauma. My role over the years also gave me a vast experience of dealing with non-emergency work which could range from people calling us out just to talk to someone due to loneliness; people calling for clarification on medication or smaller chronic health needs; even someone who needed some advice on using their new telephone! I dealt with a whole array of departments within the spectrum of the health system - GP’s (both patients own and out of hours), hospital wards, social services, mental health teams, safeguarding teams etc. My work was often challenging and I became very adept at using the resources available to me but also thinking outside the box and often taking unorthodox routes to gain the best outcome for a patient. Before leaving the Ambulance Service I was offered the role of carer for a lady who had severe mental health problems and would not/could not provide adequate care for herself. During this role I worked closely with mental health nurses, to whom the lady was known. We developed a system of care, through trial and error and slowly establishing trust. It was an organic process that took into account the lady’s fragile mental health and the requisites for adhering to at least her basic needs. I was told after working with the lady for some time that the team had seen the most progress in her for the seven years they had known her. Unfortunately she passed away after a short illness and I was again looking for a suitable client. Shortly after I was put in contact with a man who had autism and early-onset dementia. The family of the man had been trying for a number of years to find a suitable carer for him but, due to the difficulties of his autism, complex stoma needs and then dementia, they had struggled to find anyone to stick around. I bonded with this chap straight away and over the course of the next several months we formed a close bond. Sadly the chap became ill and was unwilling to accept any form of medical help during hospitalisation. He deteriorated quickly and was taken to a hospice for palliative care, where I stayed with him and his family for over a week until he passed away. Recently I have been working with a couple of clients simultaneously. One is a chap who had been referred to me via the mental health team as someone who I might be able to help with. This man had developed acute mental health problems and his family were struggling to understand and cope with the situation, meaning that basic day-to-day functions were not being taken care of. I visited him a few days a week to give him some company, companionship, hopefully some laughs! The other is a lady with complexities resulting from her dementia. I now find myself looking for suitable clients that I think I could bring something of value to. My work with the most difficult patients and situations during my ambulance work has given me a rare ability to deal with those clients/patients/families that have, for want of a better term, ‘slipped through the net’ and find it almost impossible to retain the services of a carer. I seem to have found myself using a mixture of my character, temperament and long and wide-ranging experience within my ambulance career to work with those people whose care needs are a little more diverse or different to others. I always loved the challenge of trying to get a positive outcome from a difficult situation or person. This has now filtered down into my current working practices and I enjoy meeting people who are otherwise deemed to be problematic or even impossible to deal with. A lot of situations can be defused and made better with a sense of humour, I have always found. I try to have a laugh with the people I work with as well as listening to them and trying to anticipate their needs. My range of experience/skills are listed in my profile, but I believe those little green tabs don’t fully cover the qualities needed to be an effective carer and there is no substitute for compassion, understanding and patience. I have old-school values when it comes to working with clients and I believe in being open, honest, respectful and treating clients with dignity. I have a very flexible approach to working, with regards to hours and needs and am always willing to talk and chip in if someone needs help. I am willing to provide basic grooming and personal hygiene care, also basic housekeeping needs, including shopping. I drive and am more than willing to take clients for a day out somewhere for a change of scene. I am very experienced in dealing with medications; administration, keeping up-to-date records and organising nomad/dosette boxes etc. I am also more than happy to perform medical observations and liaise with any departments that would need to be updated/informed etc. My medical background places me well to be around in the event of accidents/injuries/falls etc. One of my biggest enjoyments is cooking and I am more than happy to provide meals (either ‘meals-on-wheels’ varieties or fresh home-cooked) and make up batches of meals if required/wanted. I am/have always been a pet owner and am very happy to care for pets too. I have many hobbies and am, by nature, a naturally curious person and love to listen to people talking about their experiences and views. I have excellent references available. If you think I could bring something to your particular situation or needs then please contact me and we can chat about it. {"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":""}

BH8 9HW 167508 Hi everyone, My name is Helen. I am an experienced care/support worker working in the sector since 2007. Throughout my career, I have always actively participated in continuous personal development gaining not only qualifications but a vast array of experience. I started my career working in domiciliary care, undertaking daily visits to clients in their own homes. This was predominantly working with individuals with early to late-stage dementia and elderly care. However, I also cared for clients with degenerative disease and neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson's disease and multiple sclerosis. My next role was working within the palliative care team in Christchurch. This involved caring for people in their final weeks of life. This role was not only supporting the individuals to have a dignified, comfortable death but also supporting family and loved ones through this process. In this role, I also worked closely with a multi-disciplinary team that included nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapists and general practitioners. I currently work as a support worker, supporting people who have learning disabilities and mental health concerns. I am passionate about enabling my clients to live life to the fullest and being as independent as their condition allows. This role allows me to work with people who require very little support day to day, such as finances and shopping as well as people who require full 24-hour packages with two support staff. Throughout my varied career, I have completed care-related NVQ level 2 and 3 qualifications and I have become competent and confident in the following skills: -Palliative care -Medication administration -Accurate record-keeping and auditing of documentation -Writing and reviewing care plans as part of a multidisciplinary team -Catheter care, I have been trained for individual clients by a district nurse and am willing to have specific training for prospective clients as required -Stoma care, I have been trained for individual clients by a district nurse and am willing to have specific training for prospective clients as required. I have my own car which has business insurance allowing me to take clients out if they do not have access to their own transport. This car has enough space for a manual wheelchair if required. This could be useful if the client would like to go shopping, go to activities or want to access outdoor spaces for exercise or just be out in the fresh air. I consider myself to be a very sociable and chatty person and really like to care/support different individuals. I love to cook and I eat a well-balanced diet myself, I would be more than happy to help with nutrition and cooking for anyone who requires this assistance. I am passionate about my job and how I can have a positive impact on other people's lives. I am a very trustworthy and reliable person and being German I like to be organised and on time! The rates I have stated are subject to change based on individual client circumstances. Please get in touch if you need any kind of care or support. No job is to small for me. 1 1 {"field_week_day_first":1,"field_is_available_first":true,"field_care_type_first":"1, 4","field_week_day_second":2,"field_is_available_second":true,"field_care_type_second":"1, 4","field_week_day_third":3,"field_is_available_third":true,"field_care_type_third":"4","field_week_day_fourth":4,"field_is_available_fourth":true,"field_care_type_fourth":"1, 4","field_week_day_fifth":5,"field_is_available_fifth":true,"field_care_type_fifth":"1, 4","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":""}

Working as a senior carer for 10years, I am passionate about supporting, empowering and enabling people that have been challenged with various conditions, such as stroke, Parkinson’s disease, Dementia and Autism. I am friendly, hardworking and a good communicator. EXPERIENCE I have worked with people who had various mental health disorders such as Dementia, Bipolar - Anxiety and depression and I am familiar with some of their symptoms and some of their treatment methods at my level. For example in my previous workplace, I supported clients with Alzheimer's Dementia, helping them overcome sun downing experiences, supporting them through anxiety attacks, and develop new positive habits and coping mechanisms. When the client had intrusive thoughts, I encouraged them to positively distract their thoughts and engage in good hobbies like music,simple art tasks and taking walks. This really helped my clients feel more hopeful and less isolated as they had someone to confide in about their problems as well. I have also provided Palliative care, working alongside team members such as Doctors ,nurses, family members with respite care. On the other hand I have provided personal grooming, toileting, cooking and any administrative tasks which need support. CARE I love supporting other people and making a difference in their lives. I have always had a great interest in supporting, empowering and enabling people be independent in their own homes. I am trained as an Enrolled Psychiatric Nurse in my country of origin in Zambia in 1978 and with mental practice degree obtained at Gloucestershire University has given me great confidence in supporting clients with complex needs. HOBBIES I am a good cook, and love trying new recipes. I like travelling and meeting new people.

I helped my mother look after my grandmother after she had a stroke and it was a very loving, rewarding and priceless experience for me to give back to all the great years of loving and care my grandmother gave me as a child she taught me so much about life and how to do things and I will cherish her for the rest of my life. I love engaging with the elderly and listening to all their life stories they have such alot of wisdom to share. I find caring to be a very rewarding job. I like arts and crafts, cooking, sewing, knitting and gardening. I worked for a corporate company as a legal administrator before I had my children and have been looking after them and running small business in-between, they are all grown up and at university now in SA and are living their young lives happily. I had to go back to South Africa in January 2020 due to Covid to be with my family during the uncertain times. I am now back in UK and did another in person Caring Course through a very reputable caring agency and have started my caring journey. I live in Christchurch and am prepared to travel max 125miles for a live-in placement. {"field_week_day_first":1,"field_is_available_first":"0","field_care_type_first":"0","field_week_day_second":2,"field_is_available_second":"0","field_care_type_second":"0","field_week_day_third":3,"field_is_available_third":"0","field_care_type_third":"0","field_week_day_fourth":4,"field_is_available_fourth":"0","field_care_type_fourth":"0","field_week_day_fifth":5,"field_is_available_fifth":"0","field_care_type_fifth":"0","field_week_day_sixth":6,"field_is_available_six":"0","field_care_type_sixth":"0","field_week_day_seven":7,"field_is_available_seven":"0","field_care_type_seven":"0"}
