The post is to provide support for my elderly parents who are both living with Alzheimer’s. They require help and support with day to day tasks to enable them to live comfortably in their own home.
Basic domestic duties including preparing and supervising meals, assisting with washing/showering. Prompting to take medication at the appropriate times. Taking them on small trips, to the shops or on little walks to provide emotional stimulation and uplift their spirits. Communicate any issues that could put them at risk of harm and any ideas that could enhance their lives.
Be prepared to complete any training that is deemed necessary to update your skills and further your personal development.
Qualifications in Health and Social Care would be ideal but not essential. Previous experience and a genuine interest in care of the elderly or dementia patients would be an advantage.
You should be able to provide high quality care and support and have the motivation to develop trust and understanding within the role.
You should be reliable, honest and trustworthy but above all friendly, caring and patient.
