Elder care Job in Richmond Hill, Ontario

We are currently looking for a "great" live-in caregiver to help care for my 87 year old father who has advanced Alzheimer's and my 86 year old mother who is recovering with a broken knee. You MUST love dogs as we have a big dog (130 lbs - golden retriever mix) who acts as his care dog at times. You will see yourself as someone who sees care for seniors as your life passion and want to be an extension of the family you are joining. You must know about Alzheimer's and be loving to offer the gentle care necessary to go along with the journey that we are on. We are looking for someone Monday to Friday. Ideally we would like someone to live-in (you must already be in Canada already and have working papers - although we are happy to transfer sponsorship for the right person). The hours would be from 9am-5pm Monday to Friday (can negotiate a few hours plus or minus for the right person), with some flexibility when required, and on-call if necessary (i.e. if one parent is in hospital due to something critical, I go with that parent and you would ensure remaining parent is taken care of at home). The position will include caring for my father (he is bed and chair bound, so you will need to know how to use a hoyer lift and/or I will teach you) including sponge bathing him, changing him in the afternoon and evening, wound care for bed sores when necessary (I will teach you), caring for his catheter, moving him safely from his bed to his chair, preparing and feeding him his supper, laundry, some light housekeeping in the house, socializing with him, overseeing doctor/nurse visits to the home and reporting back to daughter on status. My father is actually a big joy and easy to take care of. For my mother, its companionship and helping her to the commode and getting her food and pills as needed. If interested and a possible good fit for you, then I hope to hear from you. We are looking for the right person who wants to be an extended member of the family long term. This position will be on payroll and will receive tax documentation. Pay will be negotiable (commensurate with experience; and for sponsorship will include room/board).
