My life in a nutshell
I was born in 1963 in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. After several relocations throughout the country, I ended up in Breda when I was 15, where I have lived most of my life. There I did administrative work at a bank for 15 years. After the birth of our 2 children I had a few different jobs.
I moved to Sweden when I was 42. To learn the language I did an internship at a school and a nursing home. After the internship I did the training to become an assistant nurse/carer. As a young girl I actually wanted to become a nurse, so this suited me.
In addition to the training to become an assistant nurse, I have done some additional training such as:
- Tactile Stimulation
- Supervisor / mentor for students in care
- Ergocoach care
- Living with dementia
I have also been able to put all these courses into practice during my work.
My work experience
Before, during and after my training I worked as an on-call worker in home care and nursing and service homes. At a day and weekend care I worked with children with a developmental disability or physical disability. In 2009, after several temporary contracts, I got a permanent contract with the municipality of Arvika in the Gunnebo nursing home in Gunnarskog. I enjoyed working there until the move to Spain in 2020. For the past 4½ years this has been in a ward with people with dementia.
My ambition is to help people who need help with their daily activities to make the days as pleasant as possible. Age does not matter. I want both elderly and young people with physical or mental disabilities to be able to enjoy the good things in life as much as possible.
