Are you a warm-hearted, bilingual English and Farsi speaking individual who can act as a companion and assist with activities of daily living for a lady with young onset Alzheimer’s? Care required in a home setting in Etobicoke (Eglinton Avenue West and Royal York Road).
Your ability to interact with her in a caring demeanor, and be responsive to her needs will help you succeed in earning her trust.
You would provide social interaction, engage in recreational activities, such as music, crafts and exercise, and do things together such as preparing meals, light housekeeping and laundry. Because she has dementia, experience in communicating and behaving in a way that makes her comfortable is important to maintain her dignity and independence, and also to have some fun together!
The remuneration would be between $16.50 and $25.00 an hour gross, up to 21 hours a week. Hourly rate to be determined based on qualifications and experiences. A CPR certificate, police reference check, and personal service provider insurance ($2 million in Commercial General Liability Insurance, and $500,000 in Abuse Liability) are requirements. A PSW certificate would be helpful to have but is not necessary.
