Hello, I have worked for several years as a companion to an elderly gentleman who suffered a stroke and had mobility issues. I was his companion and chauffeur taking him out and accompanying him to activities or just generally being a friend he could go out/ stay in with. I worked for him until very recently and am now available for a new client.
As well as the job for him I also worked for different ladies in their 90s with dementia, just visiting to chat and give their relatives a break to go out and know their mother was safe.
I am friendly, patient, calm and approachable. I am used to helping with all sorts of things such as shopping, medical appointments etc.
I have also worked with people with disabilities both mental and physical who were younger.
As a result of my work I have a DBS and of course recent references.
