I have been in the care industry for 26 years working in a variety of roles and supporting people with a great variety of needs. I really enjoy every aspect of my role and still have a real passion 26 years on. I care for people in a person-centred way always respectful of peoples dignity and privacy.

I have worked with Children in a preschool for 5 years as an early year practitioner with lots of different abilities and challenges covering the Autistic spectrum and challenging behaviours to name a few.

I am a mother of 3 beautiful children, 2 cats and 2 dogs who keep me very active. I enjoy Swimming and keeping healthy.

I can support with any of your needs as long as you like a good chat too!

Any other comments you wish to add with regards to the individual’s suitability for the role of a Personal Assistant in Health and Social Care.

Very suitable as Catherine has previous experience with working with people in care. Catherine is an honest person who is very caring. She can build up a rapport with people of all ages and will always help people regardless of the task involved.

Catherine is a very kind person who always loves to help people no matter how challenging they can be. She is patient and always puts other people first before herself. She ensures that she gets jobs completed and to a very high standard. She can work well in a team but also individually whilst using her initiative when needed to. I believe that Catherine will be an asset to your company due to her experience and knowledge of working in the care industry previously.
