I have retrained as a professional carer specialising in the care of adults with dementia and other complex conditions. I have particular expertise in end of life care. I'm a resourceful and compassionate carer who tries at all times to empower a client to live on their own terms supporting them to make the most of each day. I am patient and comfortable around severe late stage dementia and end of life care. I am companionable and try to ensure that I am able to engage those I work with in the activities they prefer. I'm in good health, fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and have a good sense of humour. My client families have described me as: " Stephanie is thoughtful, kind, and resourceful, and was constantly considering ways to improve my father's quality of life". "Stephanie is an exceptional lady. Nothing is too much trouble. She is always bright and caring, gentle and calm. Both Dad and I could not have wished for better care and support and I am eternally grateful to Stephanie for all her kindness, knowledge and professionalism over the time we have known her." "Stephanie assisted with the recruitment of a second carer and supported them in their role. She was always punctual and reliable. She also went out of her way to cover unexpected gaps when other carers couldn't cover. I would highly recommend Stephanie in the role of a carer". I am keen to maintain an up to date knowledge of best practice in health and social care and have completed the following courses: Handling Information Safeguarding Privacy and Dignity Fluids and Nutrition Safeguarding Adults Infection Prevention and Control Basic Life Support Manual Handling Regulations and Techniques In my spare time enjoy cooking and gardening and have used these skills to great effect in care giving. I also enjoy chalk painting, quilting, knitting and sewing as well as reading, theatre and films. If you believe my experience and skills might be of use to you or your loved one then please do not hesitate to contact me. My fees are negotiable.
