I have recently (4 Dec 2017) moved to the UK from South Africa (British citizen). I would like a live-in position for the foreseeable future as currently I am staying with my son in Wimbledon until I find work and settle.
I would like to care for the aged but will seriously consider house-keeping/Au-pair work.
I have no formal training except first aid and I have volunteered as companion (lunch, teas, one-on-one time together, driven them shopping, to a movie or theatre and outings) to ladies at an old age home in Johannesburg.
I have raised two busy boys, cooked, cleaned & taxied as well as been hosted/entertained frequent business guests and overseas visitors a few for whom I have made onward travel (in SA) and accommodation arrangements.
My gran suffered "early onset Alzheimer's" if you can call it early at 92, whenever I visited family in Scotland I would spend most of my time visiting her I love people and form special bonds with the elderly, animals and children.
