Get in touch for a no obligation chat.
I have worked in the care sector for more than 16 years as a health assistant, supporting service-users to live independently, mainly in residential homes and home care setting. Prior to that, i was a fully qualified nurse for 16 years. During this period, I have gained the skills, knowledge and experience, through training, meetings and personal reflection to effectively meet all challenges.
I am an enthusiastic, self -motivated person, who is reliable, trustworthy and always punctual. I have good management skills and always prioritise my workload. I have good communication skills both written and verbal, which I is very important when working with family members. I am capable of working with minimal supervision and I use my own initiative to archive targets.
Finally, I am dedicated to my duties and empathetic to my clients under my care. I also take satisfaction in knowing that my efforts are making a difference to peoples lives.
