I am a hardworking, compassionate, and very caring individual with 2 years official experience of caring for a client with vascular dementia and reduced mobility. I helped care for my late mother for 12 years, who suffered from vascular dementia, was doubly incontinent, and also peg fed. A year or...More I am a hardworking, compassionate, and very caring individual with 2 years official experience of caring for a client with vascular dementia and reduced mobility. I helped care for my late mother for 12 years, who suffered from vascular dementia, was doubly incontinent, and also peg fed. A year or so after my mum passed away, I went on to help care for my dad, who is severely disabled with multiple other health conditions, including arthristis, type 1 diabetes and heart problems, my dad has very poor mobility. Throughout my working life, I have always worked in a health care setting. I am a qualified dental nurse and have worked in this field for 20 years. Most recently, I worked with NHS as a call handler for 5 years, where I have gained a wealth of knowledge of many health conditions, etc. Why have I come to Curum? I have helped care for and personally assist a family friend with vascular dementia, who had quite a lengthy hospital stay after breaking her hip. I have helped this lady build up her confidence in getting her more confident with her mobility by using walking aids etc. I am a great believer in always treating people with dignity, respect, empathy, and honesty. I believe in looking after people the way I would like any member of my family or myself treated if required. I am currently looking for clients that are more mobile until I complete my training certificates. I am unable to lift manual heavy objects or clients due to an injury. I am fully covered for business car insurance. I am available for Monday to Friday and 1 in 3 weekends.

Excellent

Helen is a kind and wonderful person who has made such a difference to my father in laws life. Helen is a carer, friend and advocate for him. She has taken time from her holiday to take him to a hospital appointment. He is currently in hospital and Helen has arranged to visit him. Helen totally goes above and beyond to do everything she can to help. What a lovely lady. We can't thank her enough for the difference she has made.
