I am English, brought up in Sussex, but have lived, taught (English as a foreign language), raised two daughters in Greece over the past 35 years. I am very energetic, well educated, able to think around things and get things done, love nature and animals, yoga, painting, walking, writing and reading. I speak Greek and am extremely interested in other cultures. I lived and worked as a teacher in Saudi Arabia for a year and a half and I have written several children's books. I follow a plant based diet so I cook dairy free but love cooking generally and can cook excellent Greek, Indian and British food. My success as a carer has been because I am willing, friendly and capable of doing anything I'm required to do.I have had experience with many different clients ranging from those recovering from falls, to early dementia or just companionship and the security of having someone to help with everyday living. I am efficient and able to run a house smoothly. I enjoy looking after any pets or animals that a client may have. I love being outdoors, gardening or walking. I prefer a position that is companionship and light medical, which involves household duties and any shopping. I do drive but prefer not to have unless absolutely necessary, as I'm used to driving on the other side of the road to the UK. Having said that, I am willing to drive but not on motorways. I am generally very positive and calm which I think is an important part of being a carer. I believe in respecting the clients privacy in their own home whilst at the same time being supportive and available for their every need. I am available for respite care( if the permanent carer/family member needs a holiday) or for three to four weeks at a time. Ideally part of a rotation with another one or two carers is what works well for me as my permanent abode is in Greece.

Debbie cared for my father over a period of 6 months, from early 2023 until June 2023. When Debbie first joined us, my father had been very recently widowed which she was not expecting when she took the position. Debbies kindness, empathy and tolerance for my father and indeed all of us, was second to none. She was not just a carer but a confidante, counsellor and much needed friend to my father. I simply cannot rate Debbie highly enough as not only a carer but a companion and friend.

Deborah is a very experienced carer. She established an excellent relationship with my mother and cared for her with compassion, efficiency and a shared sense of humour. I have no hesitation in recommending Deborah as a carer.

We have used Deborah a couple of times now and we have always found her to be extremely efficient and has always be very good and understanding with sometimes difficult situations that have arisen. Deborah is a very kind and caring lady and is extremely good at her job.
