Elder Care Job in Etobicoke, Ontario
We are looking for a live-in caregiver for our 85 year old mother. She suffered a massive stroke seven years ago and lives in her own home in Etobicoke, Ontario. She can walk with supervision. She needs assistance with meals preparation, taking medication, dressing and toiletting. She also needs assistance with her exercises and stretching.
Usually, we have a PSW come every morning for approximately two hours to bathe her, dress her and do some exercises. On Tuesdays, she goes to a day programme on her own from 9am to approximately 4pm. On Monday and Thursday afternoons, she goes to physiotherapy by Wheeltrans. We hope too resume these activities as soon as safe for her to do so given the pandemic.
She is very social and has lots of friends visit her at home. She also likes to go to church in the neighbourhood.
We would like someone with some previous experience or very willing to learn with a patient and cheerful disposition. We need someone to care for her from Sunday eve to Friday eve.
Thank you for your time.
