I am South African born but have immigrated to Ireland in January 2022 and working in the UK as a live-in carer for the past four years. I speak English as a first language but am fluent in Italian and Afrikaans. I am kind and calm with a pleasant demeanour. I am tolerant and patient. I have a good sense of humour. I get along with all people. I have tons of empathy and compassion. I love taking care of people when they are unable to do so for themselves. I love to ensure that they are happy, comfortable and as pain-free as possible. I have many skills in the caring sector as I have taken care of a variety of different needs for example: quadriplegics mainly due to neurological diseases such as MS, MND and MSA. I have done lots of hoisting with different hoist types. I have experience in catheter care, stoma care. I have taken care of many aged clients with varying needs. I cook, clean, do laundry, administer medication, transport to appointments etc, keep them stimulated. I also have a lot of experience with dementia and Alzheimer's care.
