Hello there I am Ben, I have worked in the care industry for over 10 years with my first career as a chef, I have always been drawn by the care industry as it is within my nature to help others, My reasons for working in this field- from my early teens I was a young carer for my grandfather who ha...More Hello there I am Ben, I have worked in the care industry for over 10 years with my first career as a chef, I have always been drawn by the care industry as it is within my nature to help others, My reasons for working in this field- from my early teens I was a young carer for my grandfather who had Alzheimer's and my mum had COPD, through this personal experience I am able to deliver an understanding empathy to my work. Why you should choose me - I treat people with the same respect and dignity that I expect my own family to be treated with, due to my 10 year career as a NHS healthcare support worker I have worked with a vast range of health conditions (there are not many I can think of that I haven't worked with) I pride my self on having a friendly manner and being non judgemental. as well as my experience I also have a strong academic profile in the healthcare field with a health and social care degree, all current manual handling/hygiene qualifications, I am also a current adult Nursing student, this allows me to undertake any additional tasks such as liaising with other health care professional that maybe involved within your needs. I do not usually like the term carer, this may sound a little odd as you have probably googled the term career to come across this cite but I do not see myself as a carer for my clients, I see myself more as a personal assistant. I adopt a "can do attitude to all my work' and have assisted many of my clients to help with their overall well-being, an example of this is a client whose kitchen and living room walls were a bit tired, so whilst I was there for companionship and hygiene, I painted the walls as this helped improve wellbeing which is what I am all about. The point I'm making is if I can do it, I will do it, but please don't ask me to put shelves up, my wife has been waiting for around 5 years for a curtain rail to be put up! I have 3 children 2yr. 8yr. 15yr olds, all my hobbies include spending time with the children my interests are wellbeing/holistic therapies, (I have just completed my qualifications in Indian head massage and sports massage and also undertaking a course to massage people with cancer) as you can probably gather from this statement, I like to keep busy. Thank you for looking at my profile, if there are any questions you may have, please get in touch
