I was born in Kenya but have been living in the UK for over 20 years. I am a mum of two grown up boys and most of my family still live in Kenya and I go back once a year to visit them. I speak 3 languages, English, Swahili and Kikuyu which is my mother tongue. I have been a carer for the last 15 ...More I was born in Kenya but have been living in the UK for over 20 years. I am a mum of two grown up boys and most of my family still live in Kenya and I go back once a year to visit them. I speak 3 languages, English, Swahili and Kikuyu which is my mother tongue. I have been a carer for the last 15 years working in nursing and residential homes, dementia units and mental health units and live-in care as well. I describe myself as caring, reliable, respectiful, understanding, non judgemental, professional and a good listener. I treat people with respect and dignity they deserve and it gives me great pleasure to know that I make a difference in someone's life and help them live a good and independent life. It is very inportant to understand individual needs which helps to build a good rappor with the client. I have worked for the NHS for the last 6 years and I have gained skills in different aspects working as part of a team and also working individually looking after people in the community. I am always willing to learn new things and also learn from my mistakes, I ask for help when I am not sure about something. Four years ago I went to college hoping to go to university to train as a midwife as I think it is a wonderful thing to see a new life begin, but as they say, life happened and I had to put that thought in the back seat but not forgotten, I never say never. I try to have a life/work balance so when not working I like visiting friends, watch movies, long walks and now I have developed an interest in motorcycles after being introduced by my partner, at the moment I am happy as pillion but will start riding lessons soon. I take life a day at a time.

Excellent

Susan brightens my day by; * Having a coffee and a chat with me when she arrives. * Seeing what needs doing in the house and garden and gets on with it with little prompting. * Helps me engage with the local community again: we went into an Infants School last week. Although she had never stood in front of a class before, she talked to the children who were doing a project on her native Kenya. A kind, thoughtful and brave carer . . .
