Job description

Carer/ Support Companion

Slains Area, near Ellon

 £10. 80 per hour 

To work on a rota basis and as part of a team of carers, up to 28 hours per week, including weekends.

I am an elderly lady living with dementia in my own home. I am looking for a kind and caring person to support me with my personal care needs, such as instigating and encouraging, washing, showering and dressing, plus support at mealtimes and with my medication. Some assistance will be required with laundry, i.e. changing of the bed, working the washing machine. Washing plates etc after mealtimes.

I enjoy when weather permits going for short walks and occasionally listening to music so need assistance to allow me to participate with these.

Monday to Sunday in the mornings 7.30 am to 9.30 am.  Sunday mornings would be my shower time. 4 pm to 5 pm, to perhaps go for a short walk and prepare supper (flexible and negotiable) and 1 hour at bedtime, leaving by 8pm.  Hours to be worked flexibly and as part of a rota.

I need you to be understanding of my illness and be adaptable, flexible and patient.  You bring experience in supporting someone in a social care setting or at home and it would be invaluable to have an understanding of caring for someone with dementia.
