Hi, my name is Lorraine.I have worked in care since 1991 (in both hospital and community setting).I have supported a wide range of clients, making sure they all have a high level of care and treated as individuals. I am honest, reliable and caring person.
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.
I am a friendly, happy and energetic person. I am outgoing and I love to live a healthly lifestyle.
I am here to help you with your day to day needs.
I am a bubbly outgoing person with several years of care experience including dementia and parkinsons. I am very passionate about all animals and enjoy darts, swimming and spending time with children and friends. Sometimes in life we all need that little bit of extra help. 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.
I offer a wide range of services. If you find it difficult to get out, I can help you with shopping; picking up prescriptions and pensions. I have worked previously in administration so can support you with administration and communication. I am a good listener and am happy just to spend time with you if you would like company sometimes. I also undertake light gardening and domestic duties. My previous jobs have included pet care and babysitting.
I first got involved in personal care when a dear friend of mine became ill. I looked after her and attended to all of her household chores and needs. I decided that this was my vocation and have since looked after a variety of people with the same level of devotion.
I have cared for the elderly as well as young people with severe levels of disability. I pride myself in delivering a professional yet personable flexible service.
I’m here to assist you however I can.
