Elder Care Job in Burlington, Ontario

We are a family who is currently looking for a caring, compassionate, kind, dependable, and personable individual who is a current nursing, PSW or therapy student, in the Burlington area. This is a caregiver role who would provide company and companionship to someone in the home, as well as provide some light cleaning and support to a busy young family. Ideal qualifications: PSW certificate, or current course of study as a nurse, physical therapist, speech pathologist, occupational therapist, etc. - or equivalent. Full-time schedule of M-F, 7:30 - 3:00 daily through June 30 - can offer lighter hours in summer if desired. We would love to find a person who can work with her until at least, next May, 2018, even if not full time - we'd like some consistency for her.

My mom is sweet natured, and all of her CCAC PSWs just love her. She can at times be a bit down from pain. She's both speech and mobility challenged from a stroke. CCAC visits her twice a day and manages her brief changes. A typical day for her is coffee, meds, light breakfast, tv show or music, lunch, nap - which would almost bring you to the end of the day. If you know about Hoyer patient lifts or are willing to learn, we'd love to get her into her wheelchair more often - but you'd be there to help. She's a two-person transfer. Thank you! We look forward to hearing from you. Please send a resume or a formal letter of interest. Pay will be commensurate with experience and ranges from $12-$15/hour to start. Oh, we have friendly pets, but if you are at all allergic, this role is not for you.
