I am an elderly lady living with dementia in my own home. I am looking for carers who are kind and caring, 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. To stay overnight up to 3 nights per week to allow me to be able to settle and go to bed. Some assistance will be required with laundry, i.e. changing of the bed, working the washing machine. Washing plates etc after mealtimes.

I enjoy conversation & being in the garden, 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.
