Elder Care Job in Mississauga, Ontario

I'm an
Individual
My mother requires compassionate, experienced and responsive care overnights on a full-time basis, meaning at least 5 nights a week from approximately 10 pm to 7 am. We are looking for a capable PSW who can be on call and present with here through the night. My mother is now between a 1-2 person assist. She has a hospital-capable bed on the main floor and uses a commode. We have a Roturner (https://....com/) which we use for transfers and pivots and it provides a safe and easy way to transfer from bed to commode (and back) and from bed to chair (and back). There will always be one member of the family on-call throughout the evening to assist with transfers if it is required. The carer will never be without reference to family support. My mother is a larger woman so there will be some sensitivity needed for that. She has been able to stand up on the Roturner wil some support, but largely on her own. This is improving thankfully. My mother wears BIPAP machine when she sleeps and often needs assistance and encouragement with it. Due to a number of reason, she can experience pain and unsettledness at night and may require assistance putting on compression socks or tensor bandages. She often needs help adjusting the bed, may need light massage and some timed administration of medication. Her 02 levels and blood glucose is checked regularly, and generally she does not eat at night, but requires water. The carer will need to be patient and communicate clearly, and also understand the anxiety and frustration a patient facing slow multiple organ breakdown must be feeling. In general, our mother requires help with going to the washroom overnight, including cleaning, transfers from bed to commode, or to a La-Z-Boy. It is preferable if you have personal transportation available. She may also need light tasks done to support her overnight routine The carer will have access to the kitchen, fridge and so on. There is a ground floor bathroom. There is also a kitchen table for work or use of a personal laptop and a couch near our mother as well to rest and pass the night. How To Apply: Please message be through the site. I will be happy to set up a Zoom call with my family and I and we can perhaps try out something for a few days. We are committed to hiring someone full-time from Jan 2022.
