Hi there my name is Jan, I am 55 Years old.
I have a wide range of experience working within the care industry which spans over 30 years. In the early
part of my career I have worked within private care homes as a carer and I have worked within the community
as well. I supported someone within her own home over 13 years, providing not just support for her but also her
young son. During this time I also fostered young people with additional needs and mental health issues over a
10 year period
My key strengths are being reliable, kind, honest, caring, really easy to get along with, patient, energetic and
Throughout the years I have gained many skills.
I am a qualified hairdresser as well as working as a security guard for 10 years.
I worked for a cleaning company for many years.
I gained some skills working in a kitchen and I also worked in a care home when I was younger, when my great grandad was living there.
I thoroughly enjoy looking after people and helping them out with their every day needs. I have done it for a very long time and feel it’s a very rewarding job.
I have worked in care and mental health support roles for over 8 years and have experience with dementia, falls prevention and the elderly, autism, down syndrome and mental health personality disorders.
I am passionate & enthusiastic about caring for people of all ages and walks of life. I have knowledge of social resources in the local community and would love to take you on an outing or to a class of your choice and help build your confidence in a social environment. Previous outings include: Tea & cake at a garden centre, Shopping, Putting & lunch at Birds Hill Golf course, Walks in nature, Boat trips, Jazz evening, Craft classes, Fitness classes, Gym, Yoga, Dementia clubs, Singing for the brain, Dementia tea dance.
