I have worked as a private live-in carer through Curamcare since 2020, for clients in Weymouth, Downton (nr Salisbury) and Bere Regis (nr Wareham). Prior to this I was employed by private care companies in Surrey, Dorset & Hampshire, specialising in care for the elderly in their own homes.

Prior to this I was employed by private care companies in Surrey, Dorset & Hampshire, specialising in care for the elderly in their own homes. I also gained experience as an agency carer, working as part of a team within care & nursing homes, specialising in Parkinson's, Dementia and Palliative care. I have worked for a local Charity, supporting young adults with learning and physical disabilities (including Asperger's, Autism, Down's syndrome, Epilepsy, Cerebral Palsy) to live in a care setting, and within the community in their own homes. I enjoy working for one individual, or perhaps a couple, providing a high level of care to suit the client's routine, preferences and choices. I love dogs and cats, and happy to care for them. Also enjoy helping clients feed their garden birds, and look after their house plants & outdoor pots. I have 9 O levels including Maths & English, A level Business Studies, and Level 3 Institute Legal Executives qualifications. I worked for the legal profession in London & Guildford for many years before retraining and moving to an accountancy position in Dorset. My favourite subject at school was O level food & nutrition (and spending my break times playing tennis & rounders) but these days I enjoy home cooking & baking, and encouraging clients to enjoy their meals. I am a non smoker. In my spare time I enjoy walking my mother's border terrier on the beach, helping my mother-in-law with her gardening and attending social events with the local salmon fishing group (I'm married to a keen angler). I am a positive, happy and calm person, very patient, reliable and hard working. I enjoy a nice strong cup of M&S breakfast tea & relaxed conversation. A bit of a soft spot for a good film/drama, and travel, cooking & art programmes on TV. I am happy to take a client out for a short drive to the local shops, garden centre, local medical appointments etc. I am willing to support a client with personal care during the night, on a waking night basis, if required. Ideally working weekly within 1 hour of Christchurch but will travel 1hour+ from BH23 for a longer placement (I have friends & family in Devon, Hampshire, Surrey, Kent, & London). Rates negotiable due to level of care provided / hours.
