My name is Tanya Marsh and I have lived locally in Edmondsham for most of my life.
After 12 years working at The Cranborne Practice, first as a receptionist and then as a dispenser I decided to take my career in a new direction. Well not such a new direction, but to return to a job which I had done in my younger years and that was elderly care
I accepted a job as a live in housekeeper / carer to a delightful elderly lady of 93. It was new to both of us, but we developed a great rapport and had many jolly good laughs! It was a wonderful experience for me, I enjoyed her company and hearing all about her interesting life and in return I know the help I provided, however small allowed her to remain in her own home until she sadly passed away in February 2014, just as she would have wished.
It was this wonderful lady and a dear friend of mine (the rather attractive model on my home page) that inspired me to take the next step which was to become self-employed and provide my own home help and care service, which I have now been providing to clients for over 5 years.
Over the last few years I have been privileged to help many clients and their families, providing assistance from bed making to end of life care and found my role as a carer very rewarding indeed.
My aim is to provide a tailored service to all my clients, providing them with time for whatever they need to keep them independent and to remain in their own home longer, or just a little bit of company now and again. To assist families and carers with regular or emergency help, providing a helping hand and peace of mind all at very competitive rates.
I have done much of my learning through actual experience, but I have also completed the following training courses to assist me.
The Role of the Health and Social Worker
Dignity in Care
Infection Prevention and Control
Moving and Handling Heavy Objects and People
Food Safety and Hygiene Level 2
Equality and Diversity
Handling Information in Health and Social Settings
I hold insurance with Blue Badge Mobility Insurance for both Public Liability and Personal Accident.
I have a DBS basic certificate (formerly CRB check)
