  • Live-In Care

Having worked within the healthcare for 18 years, I have vast experience doing live-in care, looking after the elderly. I also provide compassionate care for MS sufferers and those with learning disabilities. Although I have worked previously as a Healthcare Manager, I have the ability and talent for caring and understanding of client’s needs. Caring gives me the satisfaction that I can assist someone while maintaining their independence in the comfort of their own home. Every client is unique in their own way and it’s interesting learning from their wonderful life stories while caring for them too. I am always trying to be committed to fully, getting involved in day to day needs of the client and be cheerful regardless of challenges that may arise. I prefer being with one client long term (mainly live in care) although I am happy to work on an hourly basis if that is what is needed.
