I've been a carer for over 30 yrs with my son who has cerebral palsy and has a learning disability and 3.5 years as a paidl carer. Having worked in care homes, domiciliary and one to one I have found the latter the most rewarding. Being able to treat individuals how I would want to be treated...More I've been a carer for over 30 yrs with my son who has cerebral palsy and has a learning disability and 3.5 years as a paidl carer. Having worked in care homes, domiciliary and one to one I have found the latter the most rewarding. Being able to treat individuals how I would want to be treated is how it should be. Everyone is different and so are their needs. A sense of humour is particularly important. I recently worked in palliative care and felt, although it was hard, it was good to be able to spend time with the person and give them the best care possible. Also I have worked with continence needs including catheters and convenes. I am quite happy to work with clients with pets but obviously that would be assessed on an individual basis, for example if a dogs who are aggressive. New skills are something I am prepared to learn. My availability daytime is Monday - Friday and overnights Sunday - Thursday. I would only expect travel expenses if the client was over 10mls away. At present I am working with a 95yr old gentleman with short term memory loss, mobility difficulties and a catheter. I visit for 3hrs a week and overnights when needed. Occasionally I help with personal care with an 83yr old gentleman when his carer is away and also a waking night with a lady with dementia. Being creative and music are important to me but I enjoy a wide variety of activities. At the moment I play Countdown with a gentleman who, although his short term memory has gone, is very good and also crosswords.
