Yvonne’s Help at Home
Hello my name is Yvonne, and I am a retired registered nurse (R.N.M.H) who specialised in caring for adults with dementia, learning disabilities and additional physical needs.
I work independently offering help at home including personal care, sitting service, cleaning, gardening, cooking, pet care, arts and hobbies and sewing.
I grew up in a small village in Hertfordshire with relatives nearby, some of whom had physical as well as mental health conditions. One of my grandparents had been a psychiatric nurse and it was she who inspired me to follow her into the nursing profession.
I am very practical and down to earth, and I enjoy undertaking any household tasks and gardening. I am also very musical – I sing and dance and play a variety of musical instruments. I enjoy renovating old furniture, I can knit, crochet, sew and I am a good basic cook.
I have lived in various places in the UK and have travelled around the world, and I have lived in Glastonbury for 14 years with my 18 year old daughter and my cat Frankie.
In addition to nursing I have the following qualifications: Certificate in Early Years Practice (CACHE), Counselling Skills Level 2 (CPCAB), Level 2 Common Health Conditions, and Food Safety. It is important to me to keep my skills up to date and I regularly attend relevant courses such as First Aid, Health & Safety, Manual Handling, and Loss & Bereavement.
I am DBS checked with personal care insurance, and I would be happy to give any further details and to discuss you and your family’s needs and how I could help you.
