  Job Description
I am looking for a care aid for my mother who has ALS.

About her: 70 years old, living in kitsilano with my father (married 49 years). She has lots of friends and visitors who come to see her a few times a week. She is very loving and will want to know everything about you and your family. She loves to chat (even though its getting harder now).

Two years ago she was diagnosed with ALS. We are not sure how long she has but we are looking for a commitment of around 6 months with possibility to extend should her disease allow.

About family: My father works Tuesday to Friday from around 11am to 6pm. He spends Mondays at home with her and sometimes for respite. I am their only child, I am 28 years old and live in West Vancouver.


We currently are using an agency and it's extremely disorganized and ineffective and expensive. We want to find someone who can be a part of the family and be there with her consistently.
You need to have experience with in home care and with people who are palliative or end of life.
She can still speak but her voice is getting weaker.
She loves to laugh and talk, she wants someone who is confident, kind, attentive and doesnt need to be told what to do.

We are currently looking for Wednesday Thursday Friday 9am to 7pm and Saturday from 11am to 5pm.
