Active over a week ago
Elder Care Job in Newhall, California
What We're Looking For: Hello my name is Kristina. I am hiring a weekend care provider for my mother-in-law, Carolina, who lives in our home in Newhall, CA with me, my husband and 14 year son. The hours are 9am - 5pm. We have 2 additional care providers during the week and the care providers work together as a team, managing inventory of supplies and covering each others shifts in case of emergencies and during scheduled time off. On job duties include toileting, bathing, grooming and dressing our mother, as well as walking her for exercise, feeding her and light cooking and cleaning. Carolina is incontinent and requires diapers and pads. She is unable to get in and out of bed on her own. Carolina has essential tremors so her hands and body shake quite a bit and make it difficult for her to do most things. She is able to ambulate slowly, with a walker and assistance to get to the bathroom. She has a very sharp mind but needs help with keeping her mind off of her worries. Getting her to exercise (movement), sit outside for a few minutes, conversation and/or prayer with her is important. Ideally we are looking for someone with experience with caring for elderly women but certification is not necessary. This person must first and foremost have a passion for helping those in need and be honest and reliable. The position will require a great deal of compassion, kindness, patience and the ability to stay cheerful and positive while managing the daily duties of caring for our mother. You must be neat and clean in appearance, as well as to clean up after yourself in our home. We do have an extra room and are open to the possibility of providing a room to stay in for weekend or evening care providing services. Please contact me or my husband, Robert, to schedule an interview.
