I have worked for many years in the field of Health& social care, and am very experienced in the support of emotional/behavioural difficulties [people who have the experience of LD/Mental Health]. I believe in providing a high quality of care. I have had experience of palliative care in a 24 hour supported living home, and also, that of support of epilepsy. I have the experience of maintaining a regular medication routine, as concerns the care of the client.
For the past 7 years, I have worked in a 24-hour supported living house for 5 people.
I am sensitive, and empathic, a good listener, and good company. I have a wide range of interests, enjoy travel, the theatre, art galleries, cinema, nature, cooking and gardening.
I am a good house-keeper, and happy in a nice home environment. I am content in a rural setting, and do not hanker after excitement.
I believe that I would make a good live-in carer.
