About Me:

I am a qualified palliative nurse who has worked with Marie curie Cancer care for 15 years. I left work three years ago for personal reasons. I want to do the care work for at least a year before I Go back to work as a nurse. I am a good team player; I work on my initiative. Love one to one nursing. Working with individual clients gives me satisfaction. I am also very good at bereavement care which is an advantage for clients who have lost loved ones for emotional support. To provide care is to ensure that the whole person is well looked after I can help with administering drugs, monitoring blood pressure and blood sugar, and monitoring and reporting signs of urine infection and dehydration to the proper authorities. In addition, I can look after patients and be good community support for families whose loved one is dying at home because of my vast palliative experience, which enables me to work under pressure.
