About carer ID 11655
An active person who would like to be supported to become more independent and to become involved in the local community.
I live in Brixham. I want to help other people realise their full potential by learning or developing their skills. I am a caring and kind person with a positive attitude and a sense of fun. I hope to be able to help you to learn new skills and try new things
About our house
Our house is a mid-terraced Victorian house with steps up to the front door from the pavement. There are lots of big, light and airy rooms and stairs up to the bedrooms. There is a patio at the rear.
Who else lives here?
My husband Ray and one young man that lives with us through Shared Lives. We also have two friendly dogs.
What we like to do
We like to eat together as a family and include any friends or visitors too. We enjoy taking the dogs for walks locally and keeping active.
We like to go out and about in Torbay shopping, going to the cinema. I also like visiting the beaches and going out for meals.
I also like to upcycle furniture and do craft activities like knitting and crochet
My experience as a carer
I have been a Shared Lives Carer for three years and my mum and auntie have been Shared Lives Carers for more than 30 years and so I was brought up living with people who had additional support needs.
I worked in London in various day service settings and also as an Independent Living Officer.
Who we can support
Someone of any age group who would enjoy living in a family environment. I am very motivated to support people to live as independently as they are able to, and have the skills to work with people on daily living and towards or maintaining independence.
Anyone who lives here would need to have a degree of mobility due to stairs up to and within my house.
Local area and community
Brixham is a small but lively community by the seaside. I have lots of links with local people and we’re a friendly bunch. There are two swimming pools in Brixham. There is one outdoor seawater pool and one indoor heated with lots of facilities for people with disabilities
