Companionship and light housekeeping for gentle 94-year-old


We are looking for a reliable and trustworthy individual to provide companionship and light housekeeping for a gentle 94-year-old who has had a most fascinating life. She experiences mobility challenges due to a fracture in her hip. While a walker assists her movement, outside ventures are unnecessary. Her needs are simple. She appreciates good conversation, yet also values her quiet time, particularly when engrossed in a book in her favorite chair. Living with incontinence and a hearing impairment, she needs assistance in a few areas of her daily routine. Although she is independent enough to dress herself and manage some basic tasks like brushing her teeth and washing her face, she does require help with bathing, including sponge baths and hair washing at a sink. In addition, she needs assistance with meals and the administration of medications. Working hours would be less than 20 hours per week. The schedule, minus Tuesdays evenings, would be negotiable, with 2-3 4-hour shifts needed each week. This position is live-out and part-time with no need for a driver's license. Key responsibilities include meal planning and preparation, vacuuming, bathroom cleaning, laundry, some assistance with walking and providing bathing. These duties and the number of hours or shifts may change as her needs change. Ideally, we are looking for someone who is comfortable working with, or has experience dealing with incontinence (diapers), hearing impairment, a fractured hip, some breathing issues (she uses puffers and has COPD) and congestive heart failure. We live in a house with two sweet and shy cats. A love for classical music is a definite asset! Aimed start date for this position is on the 23rd of February, 2024. If you believe you have the qualities and experience necessary for this role, please get in touch so we can discuss further. Thank you.
