We are looking for an experienced Carer/Companion to care for a lovely lady with Alzheimers. The candidate must be experienced with Alzheimers, have a medical background and also have an interest in nutrition.
This is a very rewarding position for someone that has a passion for caring and loves an adventure!
Our client is a bit of a character and is still very much capable of doing things and getting around herself, however she does require someone to remind her throughout the day to do important tasks and to help her to manage her medication, nutrition, schedules and appointments. Our client is very much on a holistic approach to her wellbeing.
She still lives at home with her wonderful husband in a fully staffed household with staff that have been with them for many years. They also have 2 dogs and 2 cats whom they adore, so an animal lover is essential.
The right candidate will be highly professional, and have an understanding of the needs and behaviours of someone with Alzheimers, someone that has a passion for caregiving, is calm, patient and confident and has a good sense of humour.
We are looking for someone to start in London asap (ideally to meet with the daughter for a handover before 15th July). The position is based in Kenya (9months) and Europe / UK (3 months – summer). The candidates will be required to travel with them and assist, keeping a routine with food and medication, and organise any appointments in and around the local areas.
