Specialist support needs

All degrees of dementia from mild to Alzheimer’s, mental health support to include mental health first aid, stroke support, musculoskeletal disorders and childcare assistance for parents with varying health related ailments 

I have cared for clients with Alzheimer’s and vascular dementia so am experienced in these fields.  Everyday I come across varying degrees of mental health conditions which have been brought on by environmental changes as well as cerebrovascular accident (stroke).  So am experienced in this field too.  As well as taken part in training for dementia and mental health, I am qualified as a mental health first aider and feel confident to give support if an incidence of severe depression should occur during my period of assisting a client.  I have also cared for people with diabetes, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, stroke and musculoskeletal disorders such as osteoporosis, fibromyalgia and arthritis and have undertaken training in all of these too.  Childcare assistance is also something I am able to offer to parents with varying health ailments as, in the earlier part of my career, I was an Ofsted registered childminder
