I have acquired skills as an advocate speaking up for those who cannot speak up for themselves. I am able to collect prescriptions from the chemist, do shopping, cooking, assist in personal care and hygiene, cleaning as well as escorting clients on day trips. I am able to utilise the skills I have gained through previous experiences. I have worked in different social care setting as a support worker with parents and children, a home visitor and I worked in residential care supporting people with learning disabilities. I am caring trust worthy, honest, I present myself well in my appearance, I was born in Hackney London, I have good housing keeping skills I communicate well and I am also a good listener and take good pride in getting my work done.
My name is Ellen. I live in Vauxhall. I've been a carer for about six years. I like the companionship. I like talking to people, especially if they are elders, they can tell me about their past, the history, World War II, how it was for them. And also, it's rewarding. I like going to museums, art galleries. I like well-manicured parks, Buckingham Palace, just walking around, really up-kept places of interest.
