Summary

I have been a carer for 14 years something I have always loved doing. I have now started a degree in medicine, which switched into from a degree in to nursing, so am continuously working to improve my knowledge and skills.

I started in care because of my grandmother, whom I looked after for a very long time. Having had that experience, I wanted to make use of what I had learnt, so threw myself into care full time. I love caring for the elderly, but also for younger people and children with disabilities. I pride myself on being able to handle difficult situations and difficult people on a 1 to 1 basis, as well as my ability to connect and communicate with them and their families. I make sure to take notes diligently and communicate them clearly to everyone else involved in delivering the care.

I love to cook and I enjoy learning new dishes and styles of cooking, although try as I might, my baking still needs work.

So, if you are looking for an experienced and knowledgeable carer, who has a degree in human and medical science and has studied both nursing and medicine, I am the carer for you forward hearing from you.
