Elder care Job in Vancouver, British Columbia

Mum is an extremely independent intellectual woman. She has one sided paralysis, and dementia with wild fluctuations. She is physically and cognitively dependent on 24h care in her own home. She can switch from singing and laughing watching an opera to thinking she does not need help, her caregivers are abusing her, and she becomes aggressive.

You are a positive FEMALE Caregiver or Nurse. Your success with her requires an ability to connect with mum, so she sees you as her friend, not a caregiver or nurse. She has extremely strong intuition. You MUST be genuine and compassionate, remaining positive even with aggression. You must have strong intuition to know what mum needs when she cannot communicate clearly. She regresses to speaking Dutch (understands English). Dutch, Afrikaans, German, or a Scandinavian language is useful.

Job Requirements
• Homecare experience. You facilitate her life and stimulation, not just care;
• Gentle but persistent, to entice her to go on outings, shower, hot tub;
• Good team worker. There is 2 staff for part of the dayshift for outings;
• Fluids Intake;
• Bowel (including enemas) and peri care;
• Catheter care;
• Medications;
• Oral care;
• Prepare healthy meals from fresh ingredients;
• Light housework.

To apply, please email telling a story of you successfully managing an aggressive dementia patient. Explain the qualities you have that make you the best candidate. Include a resume and list your personal interests.

Half time, may become full time. Support and training are provided by an exceptional care manager.
