Home carer/Care Assistant/PA with experience working within mental health a MUST.
I am looking for an experienced care assistant to help with general duties, personal care, assistance as needed to provide companionship, escort to appointments and most importantly promote independence in ensuring and provide high level care to my 89 year old mother.
My mother is a lovely woman but presents the usual challenges as faced when working with older adult. She presents behavioral challenges as due to declining physical health and chronic anxiety and depression, she has no cognitive issues and is fully aware and orientated.
I need a reliable, professional and trustworthy carer who has a valid CRB, national insurance and appropriate care qualification preferably. I am particularly keen on carers who have good spoken English and written abilities, good problem solving skills, and open minded personality. A clean full drivers license is an advantage although this is not a must.
The hours of work will be arranged among a number of carers depending on applicants but this could be fulltime-part time or relief work, my mother is based in NW London and shift could begin as early 8am. 7.5 hours shift
I am also interested in receiving application from individuals who might be available to provide companionship by living in at night rent free provided you monitor my mother and the home although she requires minimal input at night. A carer would be avail in the morn.
Please apply by telling me a bit of yourself, your CV, availability as it is immediate start after initial in house training and interview. Look forward to meeting you, please include your contact details (email and number as I would be contacting applicants).
