I started working as a health care assistant first in 2008 doing domiciliary care, then had experience in nursing homes and currently I'm working in a residential home. I believe that understanding the clients' needs is really important so I always approach them in a friendly and helpful manner. I love cooking, cleaning, gardening, watching football and generally keeping myself busy. I'm available on Mondays from 9am to 2pm and in the evenings of the other weekdays. If this schedule fits your needs, please send me a message so we can discuss your needs.

Asha covered for my usual carer, who was on annual leave for 5 days. Sometimes it can be worrying when a new person starts, but Asha fitted in perfectly straight away. The care was for my mother who is bed bound and has dementia and Asha was very competent and professional with all of the care she provided. She is also very kind and gentle and an absolute pleasure to have around. I would not hesitate to recommend her. This is the first time I have used Home Touch and it all went very smoothly indeed.
