We are seeking a full-time/part-time Caregiver/Home Health Aide with hospice experience to care for our amazing 84 year old Dad in his home in Woodbury, MN. He has stage 4 prostate cancer and we are transitioning him into hospice but would like to keep him in his home (with his Golden Retriever Buddy) that he loves. He is very with it mentally and also very social. We want to make sure he stays as active and engaged as possible while at home. As far as we're concerned he still has a lot of life in him and we want him to enjoy the time he has left with caring people helping him to do that and be as independent as possible.
The right candidate is a compassionate caregiver who is able to help him with his daily routine, such as personal hygiene including bathing, dressing, meal prep, medications, etc.
Although he considers himself able to drive, we would prefer he not, so you would ideally also need be able to take him to medical appointments as well as general field trips out of the home to make sure he is getting exercise and fresh air whenever possible.
He has many friends so be prepared for lots of social visits! We (his family) are very involved with his care. My sister lives just a few minutes away in Woodbury and I (his son) live in New York with my family but am quite frequently in Minnesota these days helping my dad out with all the above!
We are looking forward to finding the right partner in our father’s healthcare journey!
If interested in this position please include a cover letter with your reply so we can get to know a bit about you.
Look forward to hearing from you!
