I have been caring for people for the past 18 years. My most recent experience is working for a care agency looking after a Dementia patient, doing Live- In care from Monday - Friday each week. I would describe myself as a very patient person, calm, understanding and sympathetic. I really enjoy meeting people, cooking, exercise and reading in my spare time. I am available Friday- Sunday and possibly some other days. Please send me a message to find out if I will be free to help.

I'm very happy to give a reference for Maria and I definitely recommend her. Maria has been caring for my mother every week from Monday afternoon to Friday morning since the end of September 2015. She is certainly punctual and reliable. In character, she's competent and pragmatic. Faced with a challenge, she calmly tackles whatever task needs to be done and she tries to think of solutions. She's cheerful and a pleasant company.
