We are looking for a live-in carer for an elderly lady who wants to remain in her own home.

Role.
As a live-in carer this is an opportunity to help an elderly lady live an independent fulfilling life, helping her to remain in her own home, whilst giving her as much help and care as she needs. Your role will also include:
- Personal care and support;
- Administration of medication and keeping medical appointments; and
- Cooking and housekeeping.

Most importantly, as a live-in carer, you are there to offer this lady companionship, so she has stimulation, someone to talk to, someone to play cards with, or just the knowledge that there is someone else there. Must have a natural ability to play word games e.g. crosswords and word searches and enjoy TV quiz games.

The Ideal Candidate.
We are looking somebody who has the right, caring attitude. The suitable candidate will:
- Have exceptional spoken and written English;
- Have good communication skills;
- Be trained in administration of medication;
- Be trained in First Aid;
- Be organised;
- Be a good listener;
- Be empathetic;
- Be trustworthy;
- Have a warm caring nature;
- Be flexible; and
- Have good housekeeping and cooking skills.

Experience desired:
- Social care;
- Care worker; or
- Residential support worker.

If you have a caring nature, and a desire to improve the life of this elderly lady to ensure that she can stay in her own home, we would like to hear from you. We would consider a couple willing to job share.

References will be taken up before any offer is made and the successful person will be required to spend a day with the elderly lady as part of the interview process.

Remuneration package:
This will include accommodation and bills
