I have worked in a nursing home and done live in care as well. Most of my experience is from working with elderly suffering from cancer, dementia, Alzheimer's, learning disabilities and diabetes, providing them personal care, administering medications, hospital appointments. I'm a passionate and kind individual who has a good heart. I come from a humble background, I'm a creative person, I enjoy arts and crafts, like designing, creative writing and sewing. Please get in contact if you're looking a live-in carer, would be happy to discuss further details.
