I've started working as a carer 2 years and 6 months ago, and my first ever job as a carer was with end of life care. I was provided with all the training needed and I've taken training really seriously. My previous clients were always my priority 100% of time when I was with them, and I made sure that I was always giving high quality care and companionship. I think I would describe myself as a carer who genuinely cares about the client and wants the best outcomes for them, no matter the condition they are in. I always want to make sure they feel and know that I'm there for them for whatever they need. Please message me if you have any questions or would like to book care.
“Fernanda looked after my wife for a years and a half from Monday to Friday. She is a fantastic, dedicated and “hands-on” person who thinks on her feet. Fernanda attended appointments with my wife, worked alongside other health professionals very well and prompted with some quite complicated medication regimes. She is cheerful, punctual, polite honest and trust worthy all around. In summary, she is a great person and anyone will be lucky to have her as a carer”. Mr G.
"Fernanda is an all around great worker in terms of quality of work, time-keeping, attendance, communication and time keeping. Fernanda has proved to be very caring with our service users. She delivers a high standard of care – very good attention to detail." DC.
Fernanda came to assist my mother in law and I was so impressed with her lovely persona and kindness. She undertook all tasks required from feeding, prepping meals personal care through to dog walking. Fernanda goes a step beyond with suggestions about care and meals, going out of her way to offer the best. Her communication and interaction is second to none leaving us with complete confidence in her abilities. Fernanda is friendly bright and enthusiastic and can work on her own common sense and I would thoroughly recommend her. Thank you Fernanda for your excellent service.
