Hi there! I’m a Physiotherapy student in my final year of clinical placements. I am also lucky enough to have a casual role at QCH as a Physiotherapy Assistant. I spent 12 years working within the Children’s hospital (Royal Childrens and then moved over to Lady Cilento - now QCH) as both a paid employee (supervising our play room services for both patients and families, and coordinating volunteers in the wards) and a volunteer (a very special role of Cuddle Carer, settling, cuddling and soothing <2 yr olds so parents could have much needed breaks and relieve nursing staff). My most recent position has been with a beautiful little family of 1 & 3yr olds who have sadly moved back to Adelaide. I absolutely love being around children of all ages. I am very adaptable to the needs of children and I am happy to run around with them if we have energy to burn or if they’re more into reading books or building lego, I will adapt to their needs. I have extensive experience with all ages and abilities and would love to meet you and your little ones. Please feel free to contact me as my schedule is ever changing based on the needs of different families, so although I may not be available to you on a particular time or day, we may be able to arrange something :)
I worked at the Childrens Hospital for 12yrs and am currently a physiotherapy assistant at QCH. I have cared for children with a myriad of disabilities and other medical needs with ease, and take pride in caring for them in a safe, loving and caring manner.
I have over 15yrs experience caring for children of all ages and abilities. I am very adaptable to the needs of children, and I am generally able to tell what they’re needing before they’re able to tell me (if they’re old enough to do so). I am a very hands on carer and I love to engage in imaginative play, exploration and broadening a child’s mind. I love to teach them about the little wonders of life (animals, travels, rainbows and stars) and I’m not shy when it comes to that dress up box! I love to build a strong relationship with children so that they’re comfortable in knowing that I will take care of them while their parents are away. I am able to help with meal prep, general cleaning and bedtime routines and drop offs/pick ups. I can offer references upon request.
