Over these years, I have developed a compassionate approach and have great empathy for my clients. I am hardworking, very kind, a great listener, patient and always able to work at my client's pace. I dare say cooking is one of my great passions and I do it very well. I am always happy to prepare healthy meals in a clean environment for my clients. l have cared for a PSP client for 5 months & had to feed her, use nebuliser when struggling to swallow, hoisting her & supporting her in all her limited speech. I have worked as a live in carer for several clients in their nineties with ■late dementia ■hoisting ■handled medication administration ■one was on oxgyen ■continence care ■personal care & companionship ■housework & cleaning■ cooking. I have trained & experience in using oxgyen cylinders & oxgyen condenser for my clients I have worked with several people with dementia. ln Sept 2022, I had a chance of working with a 90 year old lady with dementia and she had great challenges sleeping at night, so I had to patiently talk to her up to late in the night and slowing encourage her to bed, some times with no sleep but settled as much as possible. I have also worked with people with cerebral palsy and PEG feeding. In August 2022 l had a privilege of caring for a young girl (19years) while her family took off some time on holiday. I had to hoist her into bed and wheel chair, she was PEG feeding and l had to manage that using an infusion machine, I was responsible for all her bathes and hygiene care to ensure she was comfortable. I had to do all cooking & cleaning. Before becoming a carer, l trained in early years and used to work with young children. This experience boosted my caring ability and it made it easier for me to care for people of all ages. I love reading, cooking and baking. I look forward to your contact and I am sure I will be able to deliver a great caring service.

Excellent

Lydia did a wonderful job looking after my mother while her usual carer was away. She slotted right in straight away, and provided excellent care, dealing with everything from medication management to mobility assistance, meal prep, personal care and hygiene and companionship. I would have no hesitation at all in recommending Lydia.

Excellent

We whole-heartedly recommend Lydia. She is pleasant, kind, and considerate and has been a valuable companion and carer to my Mum who is wheelchair bound and has Alzheimer’s. Lydia was able to engage and interest Mum and soon established a good relationship with her which is the gold-standard for an excellent carer.
