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.

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 if you had an understanding of caring for someone with dementia.
