Home Help, Here For You
Hello, my name’s Donna, I live in Bruton and have done for the last 12 years.
My past jobs have been providing hairdressing from within a salon and at clients’ homes for 20 years. I then moved on to working as a carer in a residential care home in Frome, where I progressed onto becoming a Care Supervisor within the company, working days and nights. I worked there for 4 years, until the hours became too much for me to work around family life causing me to make the hard decision to leave. From there I started a new career as a 1-1 TA which I enjoy but I very quickly missed doing my care work, so here I am starting my own business offering home help to my community and surrounding areas.
I am caring, trustworthy, reliable and a compassionate person about the work I do and the service I can provide. I love to meet new people and listening to their life stories and share in different experiences. I am a good listener and enjoy a chat.
I am passionate about people having the choice to be cared for in their own home. Your care will be tailored to suit your needs because I believe that everyone is individual and has varying needs. I have experience of supporting clients with personal care, prompting with medication and encouraging individuals to stay as independent as possible so they can stay living in their own home.
The services I can offer are –
• Welfare checks
• Light cleaning duties
• Assist to appointments
• Help with shopping
• Medication pick ups
• Trips out
• Hair care and styling (charged at an extra cost)
I will work with you to be as flexible as I can be with everything you need help with. I recognise that it might be difficult to let home help into your life, but your privacy, choices and concerns will always be respected.
I hold a fully enhanced DBS, a clean driving licence and Public Liability Insurance.
I have up-to-date certificates relevant for the care sector.
In my spare time I enjoy reading, catching up on whichever tv series I’m into at such time and just chilling.
