I have 25 years' experience in social care. I started as a hands-on carer but worked my way up to the role of Registered Care Manager. I have had the privilege of working across counties for three major providers over the period of fifteen years and done all the care management training.
My passion has always been in delivering high quality hands-on care while ensuring relevant paperwork is up to date. I have a vast knowledge of care standards, Safeguarding Vulnerable Adults, Risk Management, Care Planning, Advocacy, Multidisciplinary Working, dealing with complaints and safe handling of client medication.
I love supporting my clients with activities of their choice including going out to places where they feel safe to go, be it church, restaurant, shopping centres etc. I love listening to older people as I think they have lots to share. I love doing chores and light gardening but not looking after pets. I am flexible as I do not have any young children. I have four grown children and I have just finished writing my first book.
