I'm experienced carer looking for a new live-in care position. I started with care jobs back in 2005 and over the years I was carer for clients with: muscular dystrophy, spinal injury, motor neurone disease, MS, Parkinsons, dementia, learning disability, epilepsy. I prefer clients with physical or mental type of disability rather than elderly clients. With my last client I was working via a care agency which I been with 4 + years and decided to move on, to try find a new client privately or via different agency.
I'm a driver with my own car, driving in UK (with gaps) since 2007, also I've been driving a wheelchair adapted vehicles, manual and automatic.
In my free time I like going out (parks, day trips, city centres, cinemas), I like doing walks, biking, jogging, swimming in my free time when on shift. My interests are mountaineering, trekking in National parks, freediving + snorkeling, travelling and photograpy; basically spending time in nature. I hope it could be useful for similar type of personality like myself.
I'm fine with pets if they are around, non smoker.

My care experiences include working with:
muscular dystrophy
spinal injury (C4/5)
dementia, Parkinsons
Motor Neurone Disease
multiple sclerosis
epilepsy
learning disability

Some of the related skills: use of ceiling and standing hoists, wheelchair adapted vehicle, bowel care (insertion of suppositories, manual evacuation), night time bed positioning, intermittent catheters, urinal bags handling,...
