About Me and My Experience

Hi there my name is Tina; I have been a carer for the elderly both privately and within the residential care homes for the last 7 years. Prior to that I worked in hospitals with the elderly and children for 10 years. I feel I offer a more personalised care service due to the time restrictions placed on staff in the residential homes. I have a good heart and feel that the elderly need to be treated with the time, care and compassion they truly deserve. I have a Level 3 Diploma in adult social care, Level 2 Diploma in Principles of Dementia and Level 3 NVQ in acute child care. I am happy and cheerful and enjoy singing and engaging with people.
