About Me and My Experience

Hi! My name is Ann. I am origionalyl from Ireland but now live in Southend-on-sea. I have an over 14 years of hands-on experience as a Caregiver. I can assure you and your family with excellent elderly care. I will implement healthy lifestyle, positive and balanced day to day regime implementing activities to keep the elderly person busy physically and mentally. Also, providing assistance with medication, personal hygiene, cooking, feeding, dressing, and travelling/driving. Organising medical appointments, errands and shopping. I am a reliable person with professional mature and adaptable, positive attitude.  I am passionate about my job role. I have been both employed and self employed over the years and have found that I prefer to work on a one to one basis, allowing the time to build a rapport with a client rather than having to rush to meet time deadlines. Also it means that I can be more reliable and punctual and give consistency to my job role.
