Experience

I have experience of working with people who have medical/health issues and who have learning disabilities. I have key-worked adults with a variety of disabilities. Some physical and others with more complex health issues including epilepsy. I have also worked with the elderly and helped to care for my grandparents.

Since October 2016, I have worked at the Chailey Heritage Foundation as a Classroom TA. This has given me the opportunity to work with young people with complex medical and physical needs. I have received a variety of training and have been able to use it in my daily work.

I can be flexible, not just within the hours I can work but within the role that you need your personal assistant to have. I am easy to talk to, trustworthy, respectful and adaptable. Being a mother has proved I can multi-task, be inventive, organised and punctual. I would support you to learn and achieve new skills to increase your independence and reach your potential. I would do this by following your lead, offering support, encouragement and by finding solutions to problems when the current way isn’t working. I realise it is important to foster independence rather than deskill and take over. I am professional and would always have your best interests at heart. I have good IT, admin and internet skills. I have a cat and like animals including dogs.

I have experience of working in small groups homes for adults with learning disabilities. My role was to assist with meal preparation and eating, administer medication, personal care, household chores, supporting college courses, going shopping and to appointments, assisting with correspondence and supporting clients to maintain their hobbies and interests. I was also responsible for assisting with budgeting, finances and communicating/liaising with family members and outside professionals.
