I am currently a self-employed live-in carer in Scotland. I am flexible and travel anywhere in Scotland. I do 4 weeks on and 4 weeks off but I am flexible to do less or more than that depending on my availability. I was previously employed as a personal Assistant. I am a very responsible, reliable, ...More I am currently a self-employed live-in carer in Scotland. I am flexible and travel anywhere in Scotland. I do 4 weeks on and 4 weeks off but I am flexible to do less or more than that depending on my availability. I was previously employed as a personal Assistant. I am a very responsible, reliable, physically & mentally fit, kind, caring a great communicator and very passionate about caring for others. I have worked with vulnerable adults with dementia, chronic conditions, down syndrome, stroke, physical disabilities just to mention a few and I have provided end of life care as well. I have worked in a care home and a nursing home as well as a live-in carer, providing end of life care. I bring forth my extensive experience as a team player as well as working well unsupervised. I also have experience of anxiety and depression care gained over the years I worked as a health care assistant in the care and nursing homes. I have more than 4 years care experience altogether in the UK however, I also looked after my grandmother and paternal aunt who both required special care due to their health conditions for more than 10 years until my Nan sadly passed. Through this, I gained extensive care experience and it became a daily routine for me that I love to do effortlessly. I always had a passion for putting other people's needs first and I am big on promoting independence and making the next person feel included in everything in a conducive environment. I absolutely love pets. I had two dogs, a poodle and a jack Russell myself. My paternal aunt owned 2 dogs as well as 1 cat and they were part of the Family and still are. I do not have a car currently but, as I said at the beginning of my bio, I am very flexible for any distance across Scotland. I am fluent in both spoken and written English because it is our official (first language) in the country where I originally come from. I also speak Afrikaans and 2 other native languages from my country of origin Namibia. I love to make sure that my service users look and feel their best thus, I have experience in personal grooming, nail polishing, hair styling etc Most importantly, I like to ensure that service users feel included thus I love to come up with different initiatives for any kind of activities service users love to do and I ensure that they are hands on whenever possible. I am also someone that loves to be up to date with current affairs and therefore I love to initiate conversations and I have an amazing general knowledge. Besides having worked as a carer, I also worked in 2 of the biggest banks in my country Namibia (First National Bank Namibia and Standard Bank Namibia). I have an advanced Diploma (Equivalent to a a degree) in Banking, Finance and Credit. I started my career in the bank as a Financial Data Entry Clerk and worked my way up to Area Portfolio Manager which was my last posion in the banking industry before I came to the UK. I worked as a live-in carer in England providing end of life care until the service user sadly passed. Thank you so much for taking time to read my bio and please do not hesitate to contact me if you loved what you read and is in need of my services. Thank you once again Ms Cynthia

Excellent

Cynthia is a truly exceptional live in carer for my 83 year old mother, who suffers with dementia. She is so caring and attentive to all the special needs of my Mum, who is now much more calm and settled within her difficult condition. Cynthia is always smiling, her energy inspiring. She goes above and beyond, taking on many extra tasks at her own initiative. Above all, she makes my Mum happy and smiling, and gaining enjoyment from life again. We couldn't have asked for more :)
