  • Live-In Care

I've been doing live in care jobs in the last 5 years, have done it for my mother then worked for a couple who were both suffering from dementia. I also gained experience in spinal cord injuries, MS and stroke. My responsibilities were housekeeping, bathing, ironing, washing and reading for them. I'm a kind, responsible person, a very good listener, always respecting my client's privacy and dignity. I like to wake up happy every day and I find it important to pass this optimistic attitude to the clients as well so they can also enjoy life despite of having difficulties in the other parts of life. I have done trainings in tailoring, fashion designing and hairdressing so when I'm not working as a carer, I like to spend my time with these activities. I'm looking to work as a live in carer. My rate is negotiable, so please get in touch to discuss your care needs.
