Summary

Hi, my name is Joanne and I have been in the care industry for over 9 years. I became a carer from a personal experience caring for my grandma who suffered from a mental health condition. I have a slight disability with my arm and have limited use of it but this does not stop me working and caring for others in a professional way and am still able to use hoists and provide personal care plus a number of other duties. I have managed to follow my passion regardless of my own disability, which is supporting clients live independently in their own homes.
I have always had a passion for care and looking after people, I have always wanted to do care from a young age
During my spare time I enjoy spending time with family listening to music & TV
