Live In Carer, Kingston

Kingston upon Thames, London, United Kingdom, Negotiable depending on amount of help required / given, Self employed or Employed (PAYE)


~~Elderly man with Parkinson's, poor mobility and short term memory problem requires help transferring, dressing, toileting etc. Currently being looked after by even more elderly wife, who is relatively fit and self-caring but is unable to cope with all his care now.
You would have a room in a large house just by Kingston Bridge. His wife and family would continue to care for him, but he needs daily help with specific actions, like help with moving, including some lifting and transferring, help with ablutions and changing etc. We require someone to generally be there at night in case of emergencies only. We do not required someone with nursing qualifications, but just someone who doesn't have a problem with some toileting care and someone with some lifting ability. You would have plenty of free time to go out and most of the time when you are around would be on an on-call basis only. Would ideally suit post-grad student or other single person possibly even with another part-time job. Low Pay reflects low level of help required and the good inclusive accommodation provided, and pay would be renegotiable if/when the demand changes/increases. Contract is by definition temporary, but would expect to do a trial of 3 months to be extended if all well. Person required as soon as possible, but we could wait a little for the right person.
