About 16-17 years ago I gave up my high flying career in sciences to return home to care for my father who has passed away. Then helped Mum with her slow recovery from serious spinal injury. Collectively over 6 years unpaid care experience. Currently I have accumulated 4 years experience as a professional employed carer. I’m a good listener, enjoy learning of others life experiences and history. I enjoy cooking and feeding and trying out new healthy hearty meals which may be vegan, seafood, meat, British, Chinese, Indian, gluten-free, etc. I myself am a pescatarian (vegetarian who eats seafood and fish). I can definitely do a good roast. When my clients eat well, heartily, I know they are happy and doing well. I have worked as a Live In Carer with people with intermediate to advance dementia, alzheimer, the elderly with limited mobility due to severe arthritis, spinal and brain injury, as well as difficulty with communication. I can assist with hygiene, toileting, eating, cleaning, medication administration and any administrative tasks which need support. I have a full clean driving license and enjoy taking clients out to meet friends or a meal. I enjoy watching TV, binge watch series, going to theatre, walks, reading novels, play board games. My home language is English. In addition am fluent speaker in Urdu / Hindi, some Punjabi. I wish I continued with French in school. If you have any questions or think I could help you then please get in touch. I’d love to hear from you.
