Job Purpose: To assist a lady with daily routine tasks and driving.
I’m a lady in my 60’s needing help with personal care and meal preparation.
Support will include help with washing and dressing and support in the evening to get ready for bed. Preparing a light breakfast which is usually porridge. I have my main meal at lunch time and I am diabetic so I have to be careful with what I eat. I usually have steamed vegetables with fish or meat. In the evenings I have something like a bacon sandwich or cheese and crackers. These particular times are important because I need someone to remind me to take my medication .
The additional 2 hours per week can be worked flexibly and are usually to enable me to visit my son which is why I require a car driver.
