over night respite
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.
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 experience of working with a variety of clients with diverse needs (hoist and sling transfers from bed to chair, bed bathing, medication prompting, respite care for people with dementia and learning disabilities, etc). Minimum of 2 hours if out of Crowthorne area.
