Please supply an email address in the messaging system & a detailed CV will be sent. If I was going to trust a stranger with my Dad I would want full checked background, so my detailed CV is designed to do this, in addition to all the checks carried out by Curam care, together with the numerous other care agencies I’m registered with. Ref 1. An agency ...proved himself to be extremely responsible and reliable and has taken great care of his clients and their homes. He always goes the extra mile and makes sure he keeps abreast of training and research in order to best support his clients. Charles’ military background is evident in his attention to detail and excellent standard of housekeeping. From the outset, Charles has been an exemplary employee and deservedly has won ‘employee of the month and year’ on a couple of occasions. I have no hesitation in recommending Charles for any care opportunities that require a reliable, trustworthy, safe pair of hands. Ref 2. Family... a registered nursing sister Charles has been the live in PA, house manager, carer & chauffeur for my Father for 5 years until Dad's recent death. He has been utterly brilliant, caring for Dad with the utmost of sensitivity and careful handling as the Parkinson's disease and dementia took hold. Significant reductions in costs, staff longevity and a noticeable improvement in Dad’s diet, mobility, health and state-of-mind resulted from Charles’ friendly yet professional dedication & attention to detail. He was totally reliable and utterly trustworthy at all times, taking over vehicle procurement & maintenance, managing the home, staff, gardeners, contractors & generally keeping Dad happy & safe in every possible respect. He was enthusiastic and motivational for Dad, as was appropriate as understands & fits into high net worth refined homes. Dad always looked so well cared for and smart and dignified, all Charles' doing. As from the same background Charles became part of the family. He never once let us down during the entire time he was with Dad, and there were many very difficult times as the Dementia advanced. Due to his extensive corporate experience he is always keen to liaise and communicate with the team and the family, at all times putting the client's best health and financial interests first. Ref 3. Business... …having worked as Training Manager of our parent company in the UK for over 10 years. He was promoted to Sales Manager after 4 months. This was then effectively branch manager. Charles took over my position in Cape Town as ... made me the Sales Director in Johannesburg head office. I therefore had integral knowledge of the Cape Town operation and was confident Charles would make a smooth transition as on my many visits to the UK we worked together, sharing his considerable technical knowledge "Leading from the front". I got to know him & his lovely wife Jilly well over the years, suggested & motivated his return home so I could take up my promotion to head office. My confidence was well rewarded. Charles during his time with ... always conducted himself in the most professional manner. After settling in, he regularly exceeded the branch sales/profitability targets & was well liked by his peers & clients, substantially growing our business presence. His sense of humour mixed with his drive and not always gentle when required, yet always effective staff management skills, great persistence, business ethics & knowledge base, blended with energy & integrity were badly missed. Charles left us to start his own business in another field. On behalf of all the good friends he & Jilly made during his time with us, past & present, we wish him the very best in his future endeavours. Ref 4. Holiday fill in carer. Wife of client ... He became an integral part of the family coming to stay and help for three weeks at a time and later returning, while other carers took his place. This continued from about 2009 over two years. It was a good solution for the continuing care of my husband. Charles was an easy person to have in the house, and provided a lot of light hearted fun in what might have been a grim time for us, and he was always ready to go the extra mile ~ for example with his help we managed to give my husband several lovely swims in our pool which would not have been possible with other carers. It was particularly good for my husband to have another male around from the same background who understood the required etiquette in the management of our home. Charles is a compassionate man and totally honest. He could be left alone as he could manage a variety of excellent basic meals. He could turn his hand to almost anything else required including any odd jobs, DIY & projects etc. He managed my husband’s personal care with great dignity and exceptional care in very trying times.
