I enjoy helping people remain independent at home. I offer respite services for carers. In the past, I worked as a Certified Nurses’ Aide in an American care home before moving to the UK and starting a family.

I have worked in a specialist dementia team for 9 years, caring for 21 years in total including in a private nursing home, a residential home and in the community and at an older peoples’ day centre. I was nominated for the Pride of Bracknell award, being described as: “Down to earth, genuine, thoughtful, kind spirited, showing empathy to all, dealing with difficult situations, challenging behaviour, complex needs and going the extra mile to improve the lives of people with dementia and their families.” I am described as a very friendly and approachable person, and a versatile ray of sunshine to all those I assist, and that I have understanding and patience in bucket loads. I am offering full support, mentally, emotionally and physically to bring a little relief, joy and happiness to people with dementia and their carers/ families. Advice and signposting if needed, to other organisations.
Hi, my name is Lynn.
I am 58 years old and I have been working in care for a care agency for over 16 years. It’s a job I love. I’m a ‘sunny’ happy person with a good spence of humour and a love of animals. I have 2 horses and a cat, Harry Dolly and Ollie the cat. No children, but I’m ‘Honoury Granny’ to my partners 5 grandchildren. When I’m not caring or riding I like to keep fit.
I like to think that I’m easy to talk to. I volunteered as a Samaritan for 8 years but stopped due to lack of time. I will volunteer again when I’m not so busy.
I have cared for people with a range of conditions and disabilities as well as people who are elderly; Multiple Sclerosis, Motor Neurone disease, Cerebral Palsy, Visual and Hearing Impairment, Dementia, Stoke victims, Amputees, Learning Disabilities,
I have received training each year in:
Food hygiene level 3, Dementia, Medication Administration, Moving and Handling, Safeguarding.
I have been a carer for the last 13 years and have looked after a range of people including those with disabilities. I am friendly and outgoing and can offer early morning calls from 7.00am including weekends.
I specialise in support for people with dementia and also enjoy befriending the housebound or people with a disability.
I can support people with social activities including trips out, cinema, theatre and entertaining in their own homes.
I aim to provide a cheerful and engaging atmosphere for my clients and am flexible and reliable.
I am a very kind, reliable and trustworthy person who enjoys caring and helping others with their everyday needs. I am a happy and outgoing person who is also a great listener. I have 5 years experience in care work, 1 year working for a care company and 4 years looking after my parents with serious health issues. I enjoy working with the elderly, as I’m a very organised and patient person.
