I am a mother of 6 children, 3 of which are now adults and I am currently studying at university to become a Psychologist and have a genuine interest in people. I am quite a sociable, personable and friendly person and although my life appears to be busy I manage my time well and I am very organised. My hobbies are travelling and experiencing new cultures and cuisine as well as spending time with my children and creating wonderful memories for them. I have large amount of experience in both mental health & general nursing settings. I have a lot of experience in dementia care firstly through caring for my father who had advanced Alzheimer’s and was cared for at home, due to this I chose to work in dementia care for 10 years caring for people with all stages of dementia. I am confident in caring for patients who are palliative also and hold a level 3 certificate in palliative care. I have worked in A&E for a several years and am trained in Venepunture & Cannulation, wound management amongst other skills. I work in general hospitals and am able to give personal care, catheter care, take and understand observations and various other skills. I also have experience of working in mental health settings, my service users are both adults and children, mostly of teenage age. I have firsthand experience with autism with my own children who are on the spectrum and I often support young adults who are also on the spectrum. I have done quite a bit of care in the community also. All of my training is currently up to date, such as safeguarding, manual handling, PMVA, administering medication, basic life support, dementia care and various others. I am always happy to learn new skills and take further training and courses if it helps my service user and my work. Aside from the above skills and experience, I can offer cooking, shopping, companionship, personal assistant, admin ect. I can also work nights or twilight shifts starting late.

Excellent

Amanda cared for my mum for a short time after returning from abroad but her level of care and commitment was excellent. She made such an effort to make sure my mum felt at home and cared for her with such respect. Her experience and professionalism really shows. My mum has complicated physical and some mental health needs and Amanda did a great job in supporting her within a short space of time. The care sector needs more people like Amanda.

Amanda is a very experienced, caring and reliable carer. She is very friendly and easy to get on with and takes a genuine interest in getting to know those she works with. I feel confident leaving my husband in her care, knowing that he will be well looked after and in safe hands.
