Calm and flexible, I've worked with physical disability, mild dementia, and end of life care. I have a full clean driving licence and happy to take clients out to meet friends. With a background in cooking and teaching cooking skills I really enjoy making nourishing food and to bake. I love to garden and visit gardens. I'm also quite crafty - I usually have a knitting project on the go and like to make and mend things. I enjoy TV programmes about nature and gardening, and quiz programmes, a good movie, and I love crosswords, and games like scrabble and cards. Please do get in touch and i'll reply as soon as I can. Thank you.

Excellent

Persis is an exceptional caregiver: capable, compassionate, intelligent, flexible and reliable. She looked after our beloved elderly family member while we were overseas - a position of trust and responsibility. Her client has Parkinson's and needed a carer to manage all of his personal care (dressing, washing, shaving, lavatory), medical care (meds prompting, stoma changes) domestic needs (bedding, laundry), meals and shopping. Everything was handled with sensitivity - and a smile. A gem.
