Description

Friendly part time carer required for older gentleman with an acquired brain injury and early stages of mixed Dementia, sense of humour essential. The main duties are keeping him company and safe, prompting with tasks, preparing snacks, supervising getting dressed/ showered, doing some basic excercise/ walking and taking him out on errands or for something to eat. Personal care assistance is minimal at the moment but is envisaged to increase in the future, currently he manages his own with prompting.
Part of the role includes doing his laundry, ironing and some light household cleaning. It's a busy household with 2 dogs, one large one (both friendly), so dog lovers preferred. Core hours are expected to be mainly daytime, usually mornings although some degree of flexibility to do occasional evenings , overnights or cover for other carers at short notice would be a great advantage.
Only registered members can apply for jobs.
