Enthusiastic student looking for care work during the holidays.
I am a student at the university of Leicester, studying biology and looking to apply for graduate entry medicine. I would like some work during the holidays in order to further my experience. I worked as a professional personal carer in Essex with a variety of clients including the elderly, alzheimer's patients, individuals with severe mobility problems, learning difficulties and children. I also have a 17 year old younger sister with severe autism, epilepsy with speech and mobility issues. I regularly take care of her which includes washing her, cooking, dressing her, managing her behavior, taking her on outings and playing games. I have an up to date first aid certificate and a basic knowledge of sign language. I have excellent communication skills, I am patient, calm, hardworking and kind. I find personal care very rewarding and enjoyable.
