I was caring for a man who needed 24-hour care. Key responsibilities included hoisting in and out of bed, oral care, feeding, medication, toilet care, showering, dressing, and putting in a wheelchair.

I also accompanied the client to and from the day centre from Monday to Friday.

In addition to preparing food and feeding the client, I also did peg feeding when the dietary requirements of the client changed.

The client was an epileptic patient and had different types of seizures on a regular basis.

I was also responsible for taking control of the situation when the client had seizures, knowing when to calm him down, or at what point to administer medication to control the situation. I am also competent in the use of a suction machine.
My preferred employment types are live-in care or caring for people in their own homes.
