Elder Care Job in Calgary, Alberta

Hello, I am looking for a caregiver for my sister. She lives in a long term care facility (Carewest Garrison Green, by Mount Royal College in SW Calgary) but requires more care than provided by staff. Looking for someone to work Sat and Sun afternoons, from about 3pm to 6:30 or 7pm (hours can be a bit flexible). My sister was in a car accident when she was 28 and suffered a severe brain injury; she is now 67. She is very sweet and has a great sense of humour. She is in a wheelchair (though she can transfer to/from bed with assistance). She is hard of hearing and due to a recent stroke, her speech is now very hard to understand. Lately, she's not eating much and she is spending more time in bed, though she still has the occasional day when she is so alert and has a wonderful smile that lights up the room. She needs assistance with eating, dressing, xfers in/out of bed. She also needs toileting care (changing her briefs while she is in bed). We have other caregivers with her throughout the week but a little more support on the weekends would be so helpful. Looking for a caregiver who is very patient, compassionate, outgoing, and because of Jan's poor hearing, must be able to speak English in a loud clear voice. Experience with seniors, dementia, palliative care and/or providing full care would be really helpful. Please contact me if interested. I look forward to hearing from you!
