My Client Search Criteria:
* Non-smokers;
* No pets;
* Female only;
* No 'highly personal' care (assisting with showering and dressing is fine);
* I eat only organic fruit and veg. and would be great if that's you too (not a 'must');
* Clients should be positively minded (not a negative thinking person).

I am a good cook (traditional British meals and meat included); I am clean and tidy and am a good listener. I'm also a laid back, easy going, flexible person who loves to smile and make people happy. I help, not hinder and my glass is half-full, not empty. ;-)

I'm currently in a live-in position in the Buckinghamshire area, which will continue until mid-September and I'm therefore looking for something thereafter. I'm happy to work anywhere around the south or south west and would love to be based in and around Bournemouth. I'm also open to Warrington and the Salford area of Manchester for short-term bookings.

My current client is a 70+ lady with several health challenges including COPD, Scoliosis, OsteoArthritis and Macular degeneration. She takes a mixture of medications. I help her with showering, dressing when necessary. I prepare and serve all meals, general household duties, as well as transporting her to appointments and outings when required. I am also a companion to her and we get on very well. I love to use humour and keep life as happy as possible.

Unfortunately, she has a drooling dog who is on a permanent diet so unfortunately he is permanently demanding food and barking and 'nudging' me for attention. I'm not really a 'pet' person. Additionally, my client's house is down a long, muddy country lane and she also uses coal in an old Aga/Raeburn (so unhealthy for her lungs - and mine!). So, although I get on very well with her, the other situations around the job are just not for me. Consequently, I'll be looking for a new, more suitable live-in position, with no animals, sorry.

I do have a current DBS including the online update service. I do drive and have a vehicle and I'd be looking for a minimum of GBP80 per day.

If you think you can find me what I'm looking for, please feel free to contact me, although I am getting so many approaches via text, email and calls that I would prefer if you could refer to my website to see if we are a possible good match. My site is:

Kind regards,
