I have been working in care since I was 17 and have supported a wide variety of people with very differing needs. The majority of my recent experience is with people who have a learning disability, are older or have dementia.
I feel strongly about treating people with dignity, building confidence and ensuring the support I give, is how the person chooses, not what is easiest or quickest. I love getting to know people, chatting and enabling them to do the things they enjoy.
I am married with two grown up daughters and also have a rescue dog with some interesting behaviours!
I have some flexibility with hours and days I work and am happy to fulfil occasional hours outside those stated.
