Wanted Nursing Student or Health Professional

I need an additional caregiver for my father, a 71 year old patient on palliative care with moderate dementia, COPD, heart disease and cancer.
Duties will include: med management, lifting/assisting with standing and transporting to wheelchair, light cleaning, bathing, assisting patient with c-pap, oxygen, some healthy cooking, logging meds/water intake, putting on and taking off support hose, dressing, grooming, patience and kindness. Must be able to operate Hoya lift and also help lift/transport patient from bed to wheelchair.
I would also like weekly reports via text as to my father’s state of mind, how the week went, any problems and anything else that pertains to his care.

Can trade private bedroom with private bath plus kitchen/home access for hours of care.

The home is out in the country in East Vancouver, about 5 miles past 162nd and Fourth Plain. (There is a small/med friendly dog in the home). Patient is a smoker and will likely continue to do so.

We currently have a team of two caregivers and need an additional full or part-time person.

References required.

If you’re interested in work/trade please include the number of hours you’re willing to trade for room.
If you’re a student include where you are enrolled, what year, GPA, and how long you believe you will be available. Please add any information you feel will help us to know you better and the skill set you offer.

Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you.
