Claire's Description

My experienced In Home Care includes families with severe health issues and children with disabilities.
In 2013 I was part of a 24 hour palliative care team, caring for an elderly gentleman.
Until February, 2015, I worked for The Pakenham and The Cranbourne Police Stations for over 10 years as their Cleaner.
I found a fantastic Bay Side family, where I was their Nanny/House Keeper. I started the 2015 school year with them. Until just before Christmas, they moved to Sydney.
Also from July 2014, to early January, 2015 I cared for twin boys, 16 months - 22 months old, who live in Phillip Island. Was a nice time with this family. Then their circumstances changed..
Another family that I have worked with for over 5 years, has now gone to occasional care. Mom is no longer working, as she missed her children too much. But she has given me a 5 Star Rating on another site. I still see them regularly.
I can give excellent references. All relevant checks.
Grandma of 4 dear little grandchildren. Ages - 3 Boys aged 9 and 7, Boy 5 and Girl 4. Their Pa and I do so love being part of their lives. They are growing up far to quickly though.

For the full year in 2015 I worked for a family of 4 in Brighton. Children aged 7 and 12 years old. So sorry to see them move to Sydney with work.

In January 2016 I started work with a very busy family of 4 in Hampton. It is going well, and lots to keep me occupied. The days are full twelve hour days on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.
Unfortunately I have had a bout of Shingles Nov. 2017 and have been unable to work for 3 months. This has upset the routine of the Hampton family and they have decided to move on. Also one day a week I cared for a dear little baby boy from 6 weeks old until 7 months. Unfortunately this family I also had to finish up with because of having shIngles.
I commenced back to work in february this year with a family with 3 older children. I was with them for a few months then the father wouldn't return the children to their mother after the Easter Holidays. So unfortunately I couldn't continue there. Instantly I found a family under stress. Mum had been in hospital for 3 months and the family was having a hard time. Dad needed to go back to work. I started w few weeks before mum was due to come home. I stayed on for a couple of months until she got her strength back to take back the reigns. They have a 2yo boy and 7yo girl and 10yo boy.

MY DAILY RATE IS $25ph and EVENING RATE IS $20ph. OVERNIGHT set rate - To be discussed
