PA’s required for Older gentleman North Portsmouth area (POSTED 16/07/2019)

An Older Gentleman needs 4 PA's to cover visits 7 days a week, 3 or 4 visits per day to include bank holidays.

Care experience is preferred, along with basic cooking skills and the ability/ willingness to cook fish!

The property is entirely ground level and has a good sized driveway, there is a short ramp up to the front door with a handrail on the garden side. There is wifi available throughout.

Main duties are to encourage dad to get up in the mornings, make sure he takes his medication, eats and drinks. Laundry duties and basic cleaning may be required, but neither are excessive. Occasional shopping visits to be determined.

Dad is frail, suffers from COPD, Pulmonary Hypertension, Vascular Dementia and Diabetes. He is also hard of hearing (uses bilateral hearing aids), has cataracts in both eyes (hoping for an operation on them soon) and requires a soft normal menu for swallowing issues.
Dad can't walk very far now, so ideally PA's should be able to push him in his wheelchair (he weighs around 7 stone), he has to take a portable oxygen cylinder with him when leaving the property now, which is hung on the back of the wheelchair in these circumstances.

Dad has a GSOH, is smart and proud, he is intellectual and has interests in History, cars and sports. He enjoys card games and quizzes but watches too much tv!

We already have 2 PA's covering the visits, but this is not sustainable long term. One PA will be working one weekend on and one off, so some weekend work will be necessary. Other times within the week can be negotiated, but the Tuesday evening slots (3rd and 4th visits) are definitely available, though not compulsory.

We are offering competitive rates of pay.

Contacts: Karen and Georgina (George).

Initial interviews will take place on weekends.
