ABOUT ME Hi, my name is Elizabeth but prefer to be called Liz. I am available for short term placements. I am able to do night care but as live-in care.

I am available for short term placements. I am able to do night care but as live-in care. I was born in Malawi (or Southern Rhodesia as it was back in the "60's) Africa and had a wonderful childhood growing up both in Malawi and then Rhodesia before moving to South Africa just after the Rhodesian war. I now live in Australia but often return to the UK for 6 months at a time. My parents were both British. I was blessed to have been able to care for my mum in her own home for the last 5 weeks of her life up in York. I am family orientated and have 7 grandchildren. I love the outdoors. Walking and especially long distance walks are my passion. I have a certificate 4 in Aged Care (Australia) and a Level 2 Award, high distinction in End-of-Life Care (25/10/2020)- Oplex Careers (England) and am on the enhanced DBS update service. I have done live-in care work in the UK on and off since 2014 and happy to work around the UK. I do prefer smaller towns and or rural but happy to do repsite placements in the bigger cities. I have looked after clients with dementia, cancer, Parkinson's and MS and have done catheter care, stoma care and peg feeding. I am proficient in the use of hoists, both standing hoists and full sling hoists. I love doing high end care and have looked after clients on palliative care. Personality wise I am quiet, helpful, non-judgemental, compassionate and respectful. I work with clients to achieve their goals and best outcomes alongside the family and allied health professionals if appropriate. I am also happy to work alongside another carer/share work.
