Experienced carer for the elderly with 10 years of experience - First Aid Certificate/CPR Certificate/Healthcare Assistant - St Helens WA10
WA10, St Helens, St. Helens
I have been in the caring profession for the last 27 years & it has been predominately in looking after the elderly. I started this profession as a care assistant then worked & gained valuable knowledge & experience as a senior care officer where I had a lot of responsibility in ensuring the 37 residents & staff on duty, and health & safety were my priority. I thoroughly enjoyed my job & got a lot of satisfaction from it, on occasions it was challenging but so worthwhile. I was responsible for health & safety issues, notifying next of kins & keeping them informed of their loved ones. I worked at a residential home but regrettably it was decommissioned in May of this year which was heartbreaking for all of us who lived and worked there. So I am looking to pursue my career in looking after the elderly as to the best of abilities & hopefully I can make your life a bit more enjoyable. My goal is to ensure everyone receives a high standard of care from me were they are given choices regarding every aspect of their care, their privacy is respected, & their beliefs & cultures are maintained & dignity is preserved.
