I have gained experience in different sectors of care for more than 6 years, worked mainly in nursing homes and cared for clients with challenging behaviour, learning disabilities, dementia and stroke. I also assisted a young adult with attending college. I'm kind, patient and always put my clients' needs before my own by being positive and focusing on individuals strengths. I'm selfless, easy going and enjoy the company of others. I believe behaviour only becomes challenging through miscommunication. I'm also a registered yoga teacher. I enjoy horse riding and visiting places of interest, eg. museums, countryside and animal sanctuaries. I'm available daytime, in the evenings and maximum two nights per week. I'm looking forward to hearing from you.
