Live in Carer : £700 - £840 per week

Nationwide, Nationwide, United Kingdom, GBP 100 - 120 per day Travel and Food Allowance, Self Employed

Description

We are currently looking for a Live in Carer (Self Employed)

This is a great opportunity to support an elderly woman who suffers from Dementia, living in Cheltenham in a spacious house with a garden. Our client has just turned 90 and has full mobility, and used to be an avid walker. She requires her carer to help with cleaning, cooking, personal care and general daily tasks which enable her to live independently in her own home. The lady currently has a day carer that comes for around 8 hours a day during the week and 4 hours at the weekend. Therefore we are looking for a live in carer that will potentially be able to do the following Live in care shifts:-

1) From around 4/5pm weekdays until around 8am the next morning.

2) A 24 hour shift with 4 hour breaks during the day (Weekends or when the day carer takes a holiday)

Length of shift can be flexible i.e from 4 weeks on/4 weeks off. However, we would prefer longer length shifts to give this lady the continuity she needs.

This lady has been known to show challenging behaviour, but currently her medication has been changed and she is responding well to this and has become a lot less anxious. Therefore carers with challenging behaviour experience are preferred but this is not essential as training can be given for the right candidate.

Other Qualities we are looking for:

  • Experience of Dementia
  • Calm and Resiliant personality.
  • Empathetic and friendly
  • Good verbal and written English.
  • Proficient Cookery skills
  • Prepared to do light domestic household duties.

Accommodation and Food

During your assignment you will be provided with accommodation and food. Also an internet connection is provided free of use.

Travel

This is capped up to the maximum of £50.00 each way. If you are using your own car to get to the client, then 45p per mile is applicable up to £50.00 each way.

Benefits:

  • On-site parking
  • Discounted/free food
  • Casual dress
