Looking for a carer who can cover for me while I go home to South Africa from approximately the 29th August to the 15th September and over the Christmas period.
The client needs advanced care, she is bed ridden and immobile after a stroke earlier this year. She is both urinary and feacally incontinent and wears pads and she is no longer able to speak properly. However, she still has a good sense of humour and on good days makes a concerted effort to have a conversation.
The carer must have the following experience :
Manual handling with a sling and floor hoist Bed bathing Changing of pads in situ Dietary consideration for someone who has had a stroke (i.e slightly softer food etc, but not moosh) Personal care Dispensing of Controlled drugs (Butec patch) and codeine when necessary.
The carer must have the following attributes :
Very patient (as the client tries to talk, however, cannot be understood most of the time) A soft and caring disposition (client very sensitive to loud noises) Well spoken with a good sense of humour Must love animals, as there is a family dog and cat that comes to stay.
Carer must have latest DBS Registered with the on-line service Full CV At least two contactable references British driver license/Driver
The house is modern, a new barn conversion with own room and shower room, on a huge property in Somerset. Access to TV in the sitting room and WIFI, there is a car for use by the carer if they don’t have their own car.
