Hello, I have worked as a 24/7 live in carer for the past 10 years. I have experience in Dementia Care, Hoisting, Stroke Recovery, Recovery from Surgery and support for Wheelchair Users. I have a kind and caring nature and an ability to put my own opinions aside and facilitate what my clients needs. I fully respect all my clients choices and opinions and adapt my care giving to suit my client. I would describe myself as cheerful and friendly and able to blend in to someone's routine, but step forward when assistance is needed. I really enjoy healthy living and eating, being outdoors and love the sea and sun. I am available for hourly care or short term live in care (up to 10days). I would be delighted to hear from you and hope I will be able to assist you. I am away for three weeks and will be able to start work from the beginning of December.

MRs Gaye Vincent is one of the most long standing members of my rotating live-in-care team. She has provided full-time care for my late wife and myself on seven occasions of between two and five weeks each since May 2014. Over the 18months that she has looked after us she has provided ever increasing levels of personal care as well as a full range of domestic duties and household management. During this time we have found her to be not only kind, patient and caring but also thoughtful, conscientious, honest and hard working on our behalf.
