I am a very happy-go-lucky and positive person, who very much enjoys being with people. I have a very caring nature, I am a good listener & I like to have a giggle! I am a very punctual person, organised, flexible & I do like to clean! I'm told I make a great cuppa!! I'm a good cook who believes in great nutritious foods, although I do make great cakes also! I starting off in SEN schools full time, I worked also part time & eventually full time with care agencies, respite Carer & live-in Carer. I have always had a passion for people, therefore, I believe everyone is entitled & deserves the very best of care. Even more so after nursing my mum until her end-of-life to liver cancer & my father who had very late stages of advanced Alzheimers and sadly passed away the end of August 2021. It is paramount that every individual has the utmost respect, dignity, independence whilst feeling safe & looked after. I understand how difficult & unnerving it is to have carers come in and look after your loved ones as I have been in that situation with my Father. I have extensive experience with many disabilities, conditions & diseases. These are: Cancer, Alzheimers, Dementia, Autism, Epilepsy, Diabetes, Brain injury, muscle wasting diseases, Parkinson’s, Angel-mans syndrome, Acquired Brain Injury, Spinal Muscular Atrophy, Arthritis, Chromosome 12 Deletion, profound & multiple learning disabilities, paralysis & much experience with children with no statement of their conditions. My experience includes all aspect of personal care, administering medication, gasrostomty feeding, administering insulin, stoma, perristeen , catheter, BiPAP, nebulisers, oxygen & rectal paraldehyde. I have been driving on a full licence since I was 18 (more years than I care to think about!) and I have driven many large buses/vehicles. I love my family & I love to travel, very much enjoy cooking (I am gluten, caffeine & dairy free purely through choice but that does not affect my support for those who aren't by any means), going to the gym & keeping fit (I like to eat lots of fruit & veg) Tennis, swimming, horse riding, I love the countryside, animals, walking , watching tv, cinema, theatre, reading and all sorts of card & board games.

Caroline was knowledgeable, caring and kind towards my mother who has dementia. She went above and beyond always keeping all the family up to date. I thoroughly recommend her.
