Support with Confidence

Kate Francis

Personal Statement

I have been a Carer for 34 years, I worked in a home for the elderly for 8 of these years and my employers were both nurses who I learnt a lot from.
I have worked for social services and the NHS where I learnt many skills such as palliative care, mental health care, re enablement.
Four years ago I felt that working with the team I worked for I couldn't always provide a service that the patient needed which included time, companionship, support for the patient and there family's and of course personal care, medication, washing, cleaning, ironing, help with food preparation, cooking and shopping, which I can now provide.
