I am a mature English woman who has had 15 years experience of Live in Care work. I have nursed clients through to end of life in their own homes in long term live in posts. I am a caring and dedicated carer who will go the extra mile.
I share my home with my daughter and my grandson.
My interests are reading, weaving, films and walking. I enjoy spending time with my grandsons, driving, walking our dogs, exploring new areas.
I feel everyone has the right to be treated with sensitivity, dignity and respect and to be listened to, no matter what age.
My experience has been gained through working with agencies initially, as a Health Care Assistant where I gained extensive experience working in various wards in The Royal Cornwall Hospital Treliske, Derriford Hospital Plymouth, Torbay and a number of Community Hospitals during my time with Newcross Agency.
I have experience with personal care, moving and handling, hoist and stand aids, catheters, Peg Feeding, medication training, diabetes, diet and insulin injections, incontinence, challenging behaviour. My experience has included 8 years of working / caring for dementia clients.
More recently I have had three clients whom I have looked after and whom I was with long term, each of them through to Palliative care/end of life.
I am a mother of 4 and grandmother to two children. I am looking for positions in Cornwall.
