A bit about our client
We are looking for a live-in carer who can support our client regain her mobility and confidence after a fall.
Our client is an elderly lady who lives in Ross-on-Wye. She is very independent and has always lived a very active lifestyle, enjoying trips, exercise and visiting friends and family. She has had a career as a teacher, and she likes to keep up to speed with the daily news. She has a range of interests and enjoys an intellectual conversation about… well... a whole range of topics really!
Having recently had a fall, our client is looking for a live-in carer who can support her rehabilitation and can help her regain her mobility and confidence. This includes assisting her with her physiotherapy exercises and her mobility frame, and generally being there to help so that she can get around more freely.
For this client, we are looking for someone who is calm and pro-active, who has broad interests and who is able to help our client get her independence and confidence back. It would be an additional bonus if you enjoy cooking and sharing meals, as our client very much enjoys traditional home cooked food and puddings!
