I decided to come to the UK in May 2019 to do a caring course and start caring for the elderly as I needed more income as my healing practice is not bringing in enough to sustain my living costs. I've always wanted to give back to society in a healing, caring, loving way whilst earning a living. I helped my mother look after my grandmother after she had a stroke and it was a very loving, rewarding and priceless experience for me to give back to all the great years of loving and care my grandmother gave me as a child she taught me so much about life and how to do things and I will cherish her for the rest of my life. I love engaging with the elderly and listening to all their life stories they have such alot of wisdom to share. I find caring to be a very rewarding job. I like arts and crafts, cooking, sewing, knitting and gardening. I worked for a corporate company as a legal administrator before I had my children and have been looking after them and running small business in-between, they are all grown up and at university now in SA and are living their young lives happily. I had to go back to South Africa in January 2020 due to Covid to be with my family during the uncertain times. I am now back in UK and did another in person Caring Course through a very reputable caring agency and have started my caring journey. I live in Christchurch and am prepared to travel max 125miles for a live-in placement.

When Teresa arrived to be my mother's live in carer for the week (for the first time) she had obviously read the care plan sent to her and had the experience to know how to treat my mother (dementia/macular degeneration) - there were no tears from my mother when I left. My mother’s anxiety was under control and she sounded so happy when I called, so much so Teresa has been asked to look after my mother for a week every month. I can thoroughly recommend Teresa.

Teresa is very experienced and professional and a wonderful carer. She very quickly settled into a routine of excellent care, and is a great communicator and showed empathy and compassion whilst caring for our 92yr old mother. She is a great cook and highly organised and was brilliant at keeping the family closely updated at all times and we hope she comes back very soon.

Teresa cared for my 93 yr old mother whilst we went away. She fitted in straight away and was wonderful with mum. Teresa is trustworthy, caring, interesting, fun and chatty which was perfect for mum! Yet very professional and discreet. I would highly recommend Teresa for a caring companionship position.

During Teresa’s time with us she has shown a huge amount of compassion, patience and understanding whilst caring for our mother Mollie. Dealing with daily routines, and sometimes emergencies, in a confident and professional manner. We have found Teresa calming and reassuring, and has become an important part within our family unit. We cannot recommend her highly enough.
