We are looking for a live-in carer to provide care for our 80-year-old father who has Alzheimer's disease.

The client (our father) has limited mobility but is not bed-bound. He is able to mobilise with a Zimmer frame but needs close supervision and encouragement with its use when mobilising.

The client is not aggressive or difficult to work with.

The live-in carer is supported by 2 additional care calls per day - one call in the morning to assist the live-in carer with getting the client out of bed, showering and dressing etc; and one call in the evening to assist the live-in carer with getting the client ready, and into, bed.
