Caring is my passion. I am a qualified nurse and have been working as a full time carer in London for the past eight years. I feel I am a good communicator, well organised and patient. I respect the importance of being trustworthy and discrete. I get a lot of pleasure and satisfaction in seeing that my help has made a difference to someone else's life. I have a good sense of humour and prefer to look on the bright side of life. My other passion is cooking, healthy and well prepared but simple meals. I believe what we eat contributes to your well being and I have completed certificate courses in London in - Weight Management and Nutrition for Everyday Living. I did my nursing training in Germany (Diploma Nursing) and also a three year Domestic Science Diploma. I speak fluent German, English and Swahili and I live with my family in West London and have my own transport. I would prefer to work within a couple of miles from W10 or W11, working a minimum of 4 hours. Please message me if you would like to discuss your care arrangements.I am available for week days Monday to Friday and possibly Saturdays.
