Family in Mississauga

Hello, I am looking for an experienced caregiver for my mom and dad who both have Alzheimer's. They are in their early 80's and still live at their home located in Mississauga, the west end. Its important we find someone who blends well with my parents. Someone who is caring, patient, loving, trustworthy, honest, compassionate, communicative and happy to come to work. You should have a soft spot for seniors. I love my parents very much and its difficult to watch them go through this awful disease. My parents are wonderful people. They are kind, sweet, loving, caring and giving people. They raised three children, five nieces and nephews. Family was the most important thing to them and they made sure every single person felt loved and cherished. Now it is up to us to make them feel loved and cared for with dignity and respect. We want them to enjoy each day to the fullest. They may not remember what they did this morning or what they had to eat but their heart will be full. I am looking for a caregiver that understands that they are still the person they were before but its just buried under this disease. A caregiver that will help them navigate through any challenges of having Alzheimer's with kind words, direction, love and compassion. Alzheimer's does not define them in their life, but rather is just one facet. Someone willing to get to know them, their likes and dislikes, treat them with respect and like a family member. Someone who will sit and chat with them, laugh with them etc. Make them feel important and cared for. A caregiver that understands they live in the moment. Someone who believes; The heart remembers long after the mind forgets & It is important to enjoy life every day! My parents are still functioning quite well on their own. In the sense that they still can dress themselves, feed themselves, communicate their likes and dislikes, respond to your questions etc. They still recognize each person in our family and have excellent long term memory. We would like someone who likes to cook and is happy to make them a home cooked dinner. My mom is an excellent cook and getting her to help at times would be good for her. Its important they keep their minds involved and active. Going for short walks, playing cards etc. Routine is crucial for people living with Alzheimer's and we would welcome that in their care. I believe that your role is very important to the well being of my parents so I will support you and assist you in anything that you may need in taking care of them. My parents speak English but if you know or can speak any Italian, that would be a huge bonus. But its not a must. Thank you. If this job interests you in any way please contact me. If not, I wish you good luck in finding the job your looking for. Being a caregiver is an important role in society and I commend you for your work. Sincerely, Rose
