About Sarah

I love helping people! I am passionate about helping people in all aspects of life, I have not worked as a caregiver previously but I have worked in the field of mental health both professionally and voluntary for over 8 years. I am now interested to work as a caregiver through personal experiences with my grandparents becoming very sick and requiring care. The caregivers were incredible and we would of been lost without them, this really opened my eyes up to the critical role they play for families and I would love the opportunity to be able to help a family in the same way. I am caring, respectful, approachable, reliable, trustworthy and extremely committed. I love working with senior people, sharing stories learning about their lives and learning from them!

Always striving to provide top quality dignified care for the elderly with love, patients , empathy and respect. I became a caregiver 26 years ago because I have a soft spot for the elderly and I enjoy helping and caring for the aging population. What I enjoy best being a caregiver is, I get to learn a lot from my elderly clients life experiences! I enjoy conversation with them, lending a helping hand, and a listening ear. All while providing genuine companionship.
