LIVE IN care required from mid-March 2021
We are looking for someone to care for our 87 year old mother who had a stroke in January 2016 and is very paralysed as a result. She needs assistance with everything, including personal care, toileting, dressing, eating, drinking etc. We have carers coming for a number of hours every day but need someone to supplement these hours (approx 30 - 35 hours a week) at evenings and weekends.
We are looking for someone who is patient, kind, trustworthy and capable. A 'can do' attitude, with a bit of initiative and a sense of humour would be useful.
Her 3 daughters live right beside her so help is generally available if and when when necessary.
We live in the country so a driving licence would be useful but other carers have managed without one. It may suit someone who enjoys walking or cycling and the being in the outdoors. We live by the sea - so it is very scenic. We are 3km from the closest village.
Being comfortable with animals is important as we have dogs, cats and chickens.
It is important that the carer be happy to live in the countryside It is very quiet and peaceful.
Ability to work legally in Ireland is important.
More information is available - please ask whatever you would like to know.
Refererences and Garda/police check will be required.
