I worked in NHS institution as Theatre Advanced Practitioner Nurse for 16 years. In 2013, I have to take a break from my job to take care of my father . When I came back I missed my parents so much that lead me to do Geriatric care as a Live in Carer to a patient/ client with mild to Advance Stage Dementia and other health condition such as Kidney Failure Hypotension, Double Incontinence, Bedridden and Cancer Patient few to mention to many other health conditions. It has been 8 years since I started doing my caring job. I realised that this is the kind of care or job that I have my strong attachment. I am very flexible wide skills and knowledge about adult / elderly care. I have an enormous amount of patience , understanding and Love to give to all that I cared for. I always treat them the same way that I treated my loved ones. My hobbies are gardening, dancing ,listening to music and reading articles about an update in nursing and current health issues , trends in technologies and watching funny videos during my rest time.

Excellent

Since becoming paraplegic in 1990, I have received the help of a significant number of medical professionals. In my experience, no other individual has possessed the enthusiasm, the all round capability or the dedication of Nerissa. She is a joy to have around and I feel totally relaxed in her company. Her knowledge and experience of all aspects of nursing have comfortably exceeded all expectations.
