I have very much enjoyed the past 8+ years of supporting clients with varied medical and social conditions in their own homes to live as independent a life as possible. Each life is a journey and each individual so different that I find myself honoured to be a part of each journey I take with a client, some as short as a week and others as long as 2years. A good day for me is when I know that my work has made a difference to the person I am caring for or when I have managed to make them smile/laugh. I have been told by clients that I am patient and calm and that I listen well. I tend to put my heart and soul into each job I do. As essential as the 'fuzzy' stuff is, my competencies are what get the job done, I suppose. I am particularly competent in the following areas: • Working under the direct supervision of the client, undertake responsibility for the client’s day-to-day support/care needs including assisting with personal care, including skin care, bathing, shaving, oral care, toileting (including management of bladder & bowels), dressing, hair care as appropriate. • Enabling mobility, including moving & handling transfers, pushing a wheelchair, checking specialist equipment e.g. wheelchair seat cushion, driving of clients vehicle, as directed. • Assist with a diet including menu planning, preparing, serving and storing of food. • Assist client to fulfil activities of daily living e.g. working, leisure and education. • Assist with medication as prescribed by the medical team where necessary. •. Managing incontinence including catheter care, stoma bags • Trachestomy •. Peg feeding I love the outdoors and take every opportunity to explore the Cornwall district with friends and family. I enjoy swimming, tennis and long walks. To relax, I enjoy cooking a good meal and enjoy it over good conversation with friends and family.
