Job Description

Looking for a private, self-employed (with UTR number), female carer to support my elderly mother who has Dementia.

Due to her declining cognition, she needs help with personal care routines, bathing, dressing, hydration and nutrition needs, going to appointments etc.  She also needs help on general housekeeping tasks such as cleaning/tidying, laundry/ironing, beddings, cooking and eating together, going for walks, conversations and companionship etc.

Seeking a genuine reliable carer with a good understanding of dementia and how to manage the associated cognition challenges such as confusion and or delusional thinking.  

Triple vaccinated and non-smoker preferable. Fluent spoken English would be desirable as the client likes to chat. Level 2 to Level 5 Diploma in Health and Social Care would be ideal.

The candidate will be calm, patient, flexible, kind, compassionate and able to understand things through the eyes of a person living with Dementia. A happy demeanour and sense of humour would be great.

Lovely post for the right candidate to care for a very kind and cheerful elderly lady!
