My name is Vincent and I would describe myself as a compassionate, professional and caring person who likes to focus on the positives and make people smile. I believe everyone has the right to be treated with compassion and dignity whilst getting the most enjoyment out of life. My caring approach...More My name is Vincent and I would describe myself as a compassionate, professional and caring person who likes to focus on the positives and make people smile. I believe everyone has the right to be treated with compassion and dignity whilst getting the most enjoyment out of life. My caring approach is always to do what is best for the client and to engage and empower them. I am there to support them to have as much independence as possible whilst making sure that all their needs are met. I have various interests from collecting art, spending time gardening to keeping physically fit. I enjoy watching drama, sport and quiz shows on television. I have always had an interest in food since achieving my diploma in catering and then going on to work within the food industry. I can confidently put together anything a shepherd's pie, roast dinner to a stir-fry or curry. I also like eating out and going to the theatre when possible. I'm also happy doing cleaning and some DIY around the home. Simply put I like to be kept busy and I like to think I can turn my hand to anything. I am always keen to learn a new skill or indeed teach a new skill to someone else. Up until 2020 I had lived in London for the last 20yrs with my partner who was a nurse, however in 2019 they were diagnosed with terminal cancer. It was at this time I made the decision to give up my consultancy business and focus solely on their care. During this time as the cancer progressed, I had to help with hospital appointments, medication, diabetes, dressing, incontinence, draining fluid from the stomach due to Ascites, various pharmacies, pop in carers and the hospice team. The other side of caring during this time was to encourage to do things together which we enjoyed. Whether that was getting outside and walking in the park, going for lunch at the Ivy to staying in and cooking food we loved and watching Downton Abbey. Caring is so much more than just the physical but also about the mental wellbeing. During the pandemic it gave me time to refocus what I wanted to do with my life without my partner and I decided that I wanted to give back and help others who needed a companion as well as a care provider. I decided to train to achieve my care certificate which covered everything from medication, first aid, moving and handling, wheelchairs, hoisting to specifics in end of life, dementia, disabilities, recuperation and stroke. Since completing my training, I have cared for many different clients with various needs which include physical disabilities, rehabilitation, Parkinson's to palliative care. I have looked after a client who required catheter care and required the bag to be emptied regularly throughout the day as well as changing every morning and evening. I always strive to do my best for client and to form a good connection, so a level of trust is created. Any new client, I initially commit to a trial two-week period. This allows for a better understanding of the client's requirements, creating a bond between myself and the client as well as establishing from both client / family that I am the right person for the position moving forward. This can then be increased to a 3 / 4 week working pattern. Travel expenses will be agreed upon with the client before accepting any new position. If a client requires my assistance through the night a surcharge may be added, and this would be agreed upon by both parties before starting any new position. It is standard practice for live in care to receive a 2hr break each day. However, this is open to negotiation in terms of which days and how long. It may be more practical to take longer breaks on certain days and work full days on others. I am currently unavailable over Christmas. If you believe I may be the right person than please do get in touch. All the best Vincent
