I am hugely passionate about treating people the way I (or any person/member of my family) deserves to be cared for. I am kind, caring, compassionate, intelligent and I have a great sense of humour.

I am kind, caring, compassionate, intelligent and I have a great sense of humour. I became a care professional after immigrating to the UK two & a half years ago as I had taken care of my mother-in-law who had dementia and I wanted to make a difference in people’s lives! Having spent most of my career in the corporate world dealing with people, I believe this has helped me "read" peoples different personalities, learning their likes & dislikes quicky and efficiently. I enjoy getting to know people so that I can help them in a caring, dignified way. I am a people's person and easy to get along with. I am also a very patient person as well as I am exceptionally organised. I know everyone likes things done a certain way and I am happy to follow my clients lead. I love the theatre, watching programmes like Strictly Come Dancing, reading, watching tennis and I love dogs. I have a Yorkshire terrier named Scoobie, is a rescue and he loves playing with his ball. I enjoy going to new places, trying different flavours of food & of course enjoying cakes and desserts. I believe I make a positive impact on peoples' lives with my positive attitude, warm nature an excellent communication skills. Please get in touch, I would love to hear from you and help where I can. Thanks for taking the time to read my bio.

Excellent

Leander has been my sister Elaine's carer for over a year now, she goes that extra mile whatever Elaine wishes her to do. Elaine is always is happy to see Leander and they have become very close friends too. Sadly, our circumstances have changed, and I am giving up work to care for my sister full time. I would like to thank Leander for all her wonderful care and cheering my sister up. She is a lovely lady and has made such a difference. We highly recommend Leander, she is an asset.

She would play games and take my neighbour out for tea and cake. she would clean if needed. nothing was too much to ask. she kept my neighbours spirits high whenever she visited. I would recommend leander if you have a friend or loved one that needs some level of care. thank you leander

Leander was on hand at a difficult time as we had to balance my Father's dementia care needs and mum's stays in Hospital. She has been warm, kind and very understanding and helped set both of my parents at ease in their difficult times. I would recommend Leander to anyone.

Leander has been a great help with mum at very short notice. Mum had not used a carer before so was a bit apprehensive, but Leander made it easy, arranging to meet beforehand to make sure mum was comfortable. Leander has been invaluable helping my mum through the last couple of weeks. She is extremely flexible, identified areas where mum needed help and provided great feedback after each session. I would really recommend Leander as a quality carer.
