Job Description

Care is needed for an 84 year old female as a live in carer. She had a stroke in Jan 2016 and is unable to walk or stand. She receives home help during weekdays for approximately 4 to 6 hours a day where a carer comes in and takes care of her. We are looking for someone to provide additional care outside the times she has a carer with her which is approximately 35 hours a week. Thankfully, she is mentally quite well.

The role is for evening hours and weekends. Her daughter and son-in-law live upstairs. 2 other daughters live next door with their families are also available for support as and when needed. Carer will have own room, Wi-Fi, and if over 25 with a full, clean EU driving license, access to a car by arrangement, when not required by us to bring our mother to appointments etc.

The role of the live in carer is to attend to all aspects of her care during the hours you are on duty, e.g. assisting with eating, get up and back into bed, toileting, washing, dressing and generally help with all aspects everyday living.

She does exercises prescribed by her occupational therapist on a daily basis which we would want you to do with her. These are not physically demanding but she needs assistance in doing them.

She generally sleeps through the night. Occasionally, her daughter who lives upstairs may be away however, It is very rare that any night time assistance is required.

Three dogs and cat live in the house and so carer will need to be comfortable with animals. We have chickens. This means fresh eggs are available and in the summer time, there are home grown organic vegetables too.

The area is rural, very scenic and peaceful and quiet. 3.5 miles/ 5km from the nearest town and 15 miles/20 km from Cork city (approx 30 min drive).
