Are you an open, honest, positive person with good communication skills and a good team player who is flexible, reliable and up for a laugh?

The vacancy is for an 8 hour post to support a lady in her 50s (smoker) who lives in her own home in the Prestonfield area of Edinburgh.

Duties include:

  • Assistance with all aspects of daily living, assistance with dressing (minimal personal care involved in this post as the lady is very independent)
  • Support to attend appointments, go shopping, go on social outings, and with assistance in cooking and cleaning.

This lady enjoys socialising and is a fun person to be around who loves telling jokes, doing puzzles-especially playing scrabble. Dancing, singing, and eating out are other favourite past times. This lady is a valued member of the Thistle foundation team, who works as a volunteer receptionist, illustrating she is a real people person.

Cover is provided 7 days a week, with a pattern of generally one shift per week that is 10 am to 6 pm. However sometimes, when members of the team are on annual leave, availability to cover extra shifts would be a requirement.
