Learning Disability Support
Hi, my name is Kim.I am 50 years old and have been working in the Care Environment for 18 years. My key strengths are that I am reliable, patient, caring, honest, discreet and very friendly. As well as looking after people who are elderly, I have cared for people with a range of conditions and disabilities. These range from Dementia, Stroke Victims, Multiple Sclerosis, Visual and Hearing Impairment and many others. I offer a range of services tailored to suit you such as;Outings for either individuals or small groups of friends (up to four) to the garden centre, theatre or somewhere of your choice. Companion Driving Service where I collect you whether it is a trip to the doctors, shopping, community group, hairdressers or hospital appointments then return you home. Domestic Duties general tasks such as hovering, dusting and cleaning of all rooms in the property. I can offer these services on a basis to suit you.Grocery Shopping I can accompany you to your preferred store, or I am happy to take a list and do it for you. Sitting Service and Companionship If a person is unable to be left on their own, I can sit with them giving you peace of mind. I can also spend time with people for the company and just have a chat. Laundry Service I also offer a laundry service in your own home or our premises. Whatever suits you. Check Calls I can look in on a loved one and check if they have taken their medication (please note I cannot administer medication, only prompt). Looking after Pets I can collect your pet and take it to the vet, or simply just take your pet for a walk.Maybe you just want a friendly face for a chat and a cup of tea. That is just as important to me.
Well… I am a 40-something year old family man who has over 25 years in the nursing sector working amongst different ages, abilities and levels of need.
I am very hard working and love problem solving and have a lot of drive and determination in anything I do. I am an easy going laid back person with a dry sense of humour. I have completed many different courses in my time which I believe has assisted me in being to work and deal with all kinds of people. I am physically fit and do not shy away from hard graft.
My greatest love is doing d.i.y where I have undertaken many different large projects within my home and other peoples. I am able to turn my hand to most tasks, both large and small, to a high standard even though I am not a professional in any one given field.
I have two large dogs which I get great pleasure in owning and a very well balanced family of whom I am also very proud.
I enjoy many different films but like good period dramas and thrillers. I don’t like watching sport but will participate in anything. I am a confident person who is able to use discretion and diplomacy when required.
I also love food and sometimes mess around in the kitchen when time allows.
Having spent 3 years working in care, specialising in learning disabilities, autism/Asperger’s, mental health issues and physical disabilities, I have taken the decision to move away from the corporate care market, allowing me to provide a truly bespoke care service for my clients. I am happy to try new techniques and on occasion, unorthodox methods to allow my customers to move nearer to their potential and improve all aspects of their daily and future lives.
My services include assistance to access the community and/or a range of physical activities including on days trips and holidays. More information can be found on my website, www.carecraftsupport.com

I can make that difference by providing good quality care whilst understanding individual needs, promoting independence and being a carer who is reliable honest and trustworthy.
