I am a 43 year old British citizen originally from Angola. I am married and a mother of four children and I have been living in Pimlico for almost 18 years. I have worked as a carer for the last two years working with a private client with physical disabilities. My duties have included assisting with their daily living and interpreting Portuguese to English and also general administrative duties. I also cared for her husband who suffered from Alzheimers. Additionally, I have worked looking after families over the last 10 years, working as a housekeeper, nanny and personal assistant. I love working as a carer as caring is second nature to me. I enjoy helping those who are less able. Being a mother myself has given me lots of personal experience caring for others and I enjoy meeting new people.

I have known Maria for 4 years and she has cared for me for 2 years. She is very punctual and very loving and caring. You can only say good of Maria.

I have known Maria for over 15 years and she has been working for me for a number of years in different capacities. She works as a personal assistant for my business but also helps with the family, housekeeping and looking after my children. Maria is very reliable and trustworthy, always punctual and very kind and caring. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
