Expertise

I love art and craft and have a varied supply of art materials that I can bring to clients for creative sessions. I use painting and drawing as a way for some clients to express themselves and simply relax. 

Pottering in the garden and visiting garden centres is a favourite past time too. Many of my clients like to have tea at local nurseries and wander around taking time to 'smell the roses'. 

One of my strongest skills is dealing with paperwork and clutter-busting homes. I organise much of my clients correspondence and help them adjust their homes to make their lives easier. 

Interests:

Pottering in the garden and visiting garden centres is my favourite past time.
I enjoy watching old Hollywood movies and listening to music from Dean Martin to Beethoven!

Experience

I have worked as a personal assistant for over 5 years and can honestly say I've never had a bad day at work. It is the best job in the world. I was lucky enough to be brought up alongside my grandparents and my days are again filled spending time with nannies and granddads. I am a wife, daughter, mum and owner or numerous animals and so spend time at home caring for pets, children and parents!

Through East Sussex County Council I continually update my skills and knowledge as I aim to provide my clients with a high standard of care and assistance within current guidelines. I have developed strong friendships with all my clients and their families and believe strongly in person centred care. Being a good companion is at the core of my work and I endeavour to make a difference to the lives of those that need a little extra help. I encourage my clients to make their own decisions and we work together to plan our time effectively. 

I work mainly with the elderly including Dementia and Learning Disability clients. I feel my years of experience helps me to provide my clients with a quality service and I bring with me a sense of humour, a high standard of work and above all, friendship.

Background

My previous work involved personal assistant roles in the business sector which developed into training as an NVQ assessor and eventually management. I took time out to be a mum but continued to study part-time and work towards a degree in Fine Art. 

I have worked with pre-school children, at Chailey Heritage as an assistant and volunteer and planned are sessions at my local primary school.

Last year I completed the Health and Social Care Level 3 Certificate specialising in Dementia. Although I work for myself, I continue to train and update my knowledge through ESCC to be able to provide a fresh and up-to-date service.
