Business overview

Local Home Care provider covering Bury St Edmunds and surrounding areas.

Private Carer is a newly established Private Residential Home Care Service provider based in Bury St Edmunds.

I am a well organised and focused individual with an eye for detail. I work to a high standard and am able to manage my own time efficiently. I have an extremely varied and knowledgeable work history with eight years experience in the care sector, where I gained an Advanced Level Apprenticeship in Adult Social Care/Level 3 NVQ. Nearly half of those years I spent as a Senior Carer running a unit which was home to fifteen residents whilst supporting countless Care Assistants. I have experience with Stoma bags, catheters and peg feeds although would need a refresher for peg feeds. I pride myself on being an effective communicator and an expert in person centred care. I have a Level One in British Sign Language gained after my family adopted my younger brother who is profoundly deaf and has learning disabilities. Being a mother of one I have always cooked healthy meals using fresh produce whilst on a budget. I have a full driving license with ten years driving experience. When I am not at work I enjoy long dog walks in the countryside, or getting stuck into a good book. I am a non smoker and whilst I would prefer non smoking clients I do believe everyone has a right to live how they choose therefore I would consider smoking clients and discuss this with them further. Services offered range from companionship to housekeeping and personal care to respite care. Please call or email to discuss your requirements and to arrange an initial meeting.

First Class Care

5
My father suffered from Parkinson’s and Lewy Bodies Dementia in later life and Emily was his carer. She was absolutely wonderful with him and became a true friend to him last year when I was unable to visit during the first lockdown. Emily is an outstanding carer who is one of the most professional, caring and compassionate people I have ever met.

Highly recommended

I would happily recommend Emily to anyone looking for a pro-active, positive, supportive, trustworthy and experienced carer. She has supported me brilliantly with my 94 year old father recently and been a source of strength in helping me to get him moved into a suitable local care home as his health deteriorated.

Caring and kind

Emily provided kind and caring support to my elderly mother and I have no hesitation in recommending her. She has the sensitivity and skills to build up an excellent rapport with her clients and it is always a pleasure to see her smiling face.

Excellent private carer.

I can't recommend Emily highly enough. She quickly became a great friend and support for my mother, who has memory problems. She has a flexible, can do attitude. Emily proactively assesses my mother's needs, always mindful of her wishes and respects her thoughts without prejudice. She has been excellent at communicating with our family, even setting up a Whatsapp group within the first week of starting. We really feel Emily is reliable and trustworthy, really improving my mother's life giving us great peace of mind.
