Purpose of Job
My name is Denis. I am 45 years old and I live with my sister Tracie, who is responsible for my care, and her partner in a bungalow.
My passion was my computer however since I had a stroke, I am unable to access it and someone with an interest in computers would be ideal.
I don’t always communicate easily due to my hearing and visual loss.
There may be long pauses between questions and I sometimes may give an answer to a question that is not in keeping with the topic being discussed. So being a good listener is essential.
I have limited mobility and require assistance with all transfers using a stand aid and going to the toilet, I also have a catheter. Training will be provided for these.
I also need to have my arms and legs stretched twice a day and occasionally may like to go out locally for a cup of tea, although I don’t like the cold but persevere with that, I always complain that it’s cold.
I do love a cup of tea and on occasions a cup of coffee and need encouragement to stay hydrated. You will also be required to prepare simple meals. After a few cups of tea, I like to retire to my bed in the afternoon for a few hours. We also have a small dog therefore you would have to be comfortable around dogs.
You do not need any formal qualifications, but you must be willing to learn how to do the job under my direction.
