PA’s required for Older gentleman North Portsmouth area (POSTED 25/03/2019)

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! Own transport is essential as dad needs to be taken to appointments, most of which will be around Portsmouth, but some trips to Southampton will also be necessary from time to time. This means motorway driving is also required.
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.

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 are a requirement, 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 all PA's will need to be able to push him in his wheelchair.

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 are offering competitive rates of pay plus a mileage allowance for car journeys.
