About the Client

Clients Name: Julie

Food they like: She has a penchant for all things nostalgic and a bit stodgy! Apple cake being a classic example. But we also eat a lot of continental food in our house — italian being a solid favourite.

Music: Bruce Springsteen, Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan... She spends a lot of time watching Tiny Desk sessions (NPR) on YouTube.

TV: Documentaries that challenge her mind in some way - historical, geographical, political. She also loves a scandi crime drama or two!

Films: She and dad quite enjoy a music documentary style film, comedies and drama.

Books: Again, often intellectual books that teach her something. She has a particular interest in philosophy and ancient history.

Days Out: Before her diagnosis days out were spent on Hampstead Heath, at her art class and eating out with friends.

Other Interests: She is incredibly bright, intelligent and creative. She has taught yoga for over 35 years and is a keen painter. Before her diagnosis she attended an art class and — though she wouldn't like to admit it — she is very talented. She now 'paints' digital art using her eye gaze machine.


Hello! We are looking for a kind, patient carer to help care for our mum who has Motor Neurone Disease.

Motor Neurone Disease (MND) is a terminal, progressive muscle wasting condition which changes and becomes more complex over time.

We are looking for someone to work evenings — carrying out the bedtime routine — from approx 9pm, as many nights a week as possible.

Ideally you would live locally and/or have your own car so as to reduce the risk of Covid coming into the house.

Moving and handling qualifications are a bonus, but a positive outlook and willingness to learn is much more important!

If we think you might be a good fit, we will invite you for an interview. This will be a chance for us to find out more about your skills and to get to know each other better. Following the interview, we would like to do a week’s trial and go from there.

Hours will be paid weekly on receipt of invoice.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you so much.
