Elder Care Job in Kanata, Ontario
We are seeking an English speaking, experienced, kind and compassionate elder caregiver (PSW preferred) to provide daily living assistance to a soft-spoken lady of 87 years. My mother requires permanent daily personal living care for about 5.5 hours in the mornings/early afternoon for 4 days a week, beginning July 20 or asap.
My mother lives in Kanata in a beautiful COVID-FREE Private Retirement Residence in the Assisted Living area. The Residence also has a requirement that all essential workers must have a regular Covid test biweekly which is available at the residence, until this requirement has been lifted by Public Health. There are no staff or resident Covid cases (not in outbreak).
My mother currently has daily living assistance through Assisted Living including dressing, showering and a few other things, but needs additional private caregiving assistance in the mornings and at lunch. She currently has one other private caregiver who assists her on weekends.
As my mother is concerned about her inability to do things herself, she needs someone who is understanding, patient, kind and able to speak with her in a gentle manner and put her mind at ease.
If you think the position outline above describes services you can provide and would be eager to fill, we would love to hear from you! The residence is accessible by public transit (bus stop in front of building), but a car would be a asset. The hours are from 8:30 am - 1:30 pm daily (occasionally a little later) and will be for 4 days a week beginning July 20 or asap.
