I am a Portuguese Female carer , 47 years old, single, no children. I have graduated in Portugal as a nursery Teacher (childhood educator as we call it there) and have moved to UK for good in August 2013 to work with the elderly in the care sector. I have now over 8 years of care experience, being the first 5 months as Community/Domiciliary Carer and over seven and a half years now as a Live-in Carer. I got in May 2016 my NVQ 3 Diploma in Health and Social Care having most of the subjects of it based at Dementia as that is an area in which I have several years of experience. I have also gained a lot of experience is moving and handling as most of my clients were non mobile and required a hoist to mobilize. I have also gained experience in catheter care, stoma care, palliative care, end of life care and have had specialist Training for PEG tube feeding and PEG tube medication administration having been signed off for it back in 2016. I am a confident driver for both manual and automatic gearbox cars and I do have my own car. I have been working for a while as a Field Care Supervisor and as a Care Coordinator in 2020 and as a Scheduler more recently as it is my target to keep progressing in my care career. For that reason I am now just finishing my NVQ 5 in Leadership and Management in Health and Social Care, having already concluded 92% of it.

My English language level is Advanced. I also speak Spanish fluently. My French is medium level and My Italian is weak. Obviously Portuguese is my main language as I born in Portugal, more precisely in Lisbon, having lived there all my life until moving to the UK..

My goal (or dream, but one way or another I will keep fighting to achieve it) is to be able to open my own care company. For now, I'm open to options to work as a private live-in carer, a care coordinator or a deputy manager.

If you think you can have a job offer to me, please do not hesitate in getting in touch, please. Thank you very much for taking time to read this.

Kind regards.

Ana Sousa.
