Job description

Live-in Carer, Surrey.

We are seeking an experienced professional to care for my elderly parents, 87 and 92.

They live in a very pleasant two-bedroom apartment in a gated complex near Godalming. They are independent, but getting very frail. After a recent deterioration and hospital stay, my father is no longer able to properly look after my mother in the way he has to-date. She is not very mobile and sometimes up several times a night.

The job is primarily to support with the evening and morning routines and to administer prescribed medication. You may also need to provide assistance during the night.

A separate en-suite bedroom is provided for you. The ideal individual would be able to engage closely with them and help with some light household duties (additional cleaning help is employed once a week).

The candidate should have relevant training in the sector. A nursing background would be an advantage, as would a clean driving licence and own car.

We are looking for a trustworthy, respectful and reliable person. We are flexible on incorporating regular days off and the package will be generous.

Please send CV listing training & experience, current DBS, two recent, contactable references and any qualification certificates (nursing or NVQ). Non-smoker.
