We are seeking an experienced live-in carer for a delightful elderly lady living in St. Albans. The client is a lovely person with many interests who needs assistance with personal care, mobility, preparation of meals, and light household tasks. She receives frequent visits from family and friends, is mentally alert, and has a warm and happy disposition. She can walk to the bathroom with the aid of a Zimmer frame and enjoys brief wheelchair outings in good weather. The post is likely to include palliative care as her condition progresses.
You must be an experienced live-in carer with a sensitive approach, clear spoken English and a kind manner. You will preferably have passed a course in Basic Skills for Care and/or hold an NVQ2 in Social Care of the Elderly. You will have your own bedroom. The client usually wakes a few times during the night, and respite care is provided daily from 10 am to 1 pm for you to take additional rest or otherwise attend to your own needs. References and a recent CRB check are required. It is anticipated that two carers will share the position, alternating every 2 to 4 weeks. Fees are £600 per week.
