Live-in Care Assistant

Description

Live-in Care Assistant vacancy

We are searching for a live-in carer to support a lovely gentleman who lives just outside of Gloucester.

 

We have been supporting this gentleman with three domiciliary visits per day for some time now. He sadly lost his wife earlier this year, and his son has been staying with him up until recently but would like for a live in carer to support as soon as possible.

 

This gentleman is living with dementia and does very often become confused and disorientated throughout the day. He requires reassurance throughout the day and can become unsettled, he requires support with all aspects of daily living including personal care, continence care, food and fluids and general companionship.  His son has described him to have good days and some more difficult days. He does sometimes get up during the night and the carer would be required to provide verbal reassurance. This package has been assessed at high-dependency with rates of pay to reflect this.

 

The current domiciliary carers will continue to come in in the afternoon to provide the live-in carer with a break. Due to this gentleman having an inconsistent pattern in waking and sleeping nights, on the nights where he was more unsettled requiring the carers reassurance on several occasions, his son has agreed for a longer break to be scheduled for the following day so the live in carer has plenty of rest.

 

This gentleman has a really lovely sense of humour and would benefit from engaging in meaningful activities throughout the day to keep him stimulated. A carer with experience in dementia care is essential.
