This is an interesting and unique opportunity to help support an elderly lady in Saltford near Bristol.
- Check on Mum several times a day to ensure she is safe and comfortable.
- Cook a main meal to share with her and clear up afterwards. You are also welcome to share breakfast and lunch but this isn't essential.
- Spend at least 2 hours each day at 2 or 3 different times during the day conversing with her.
- Complete simple household tasks such as changing bed linen, hanging washing, filling & emptying the dishwasher.
- Be available to Mum when she is engaged in potentially tricky activities, eg, showering, walking outside. (She doesn't need personal care, just a watchful eye and somebody within shouting distance)
- Walk the dog daily. She is a small West Highland White terrier with a sweet nature.
- Carry out any reasonable request Mum might have.
