Help an 86-year-old lady to start her day comfortably while having the flexibility to manage your own. Embrace a fulfilling role that accommodates your schedule. 

Do you have care experience and transport and, ideally, live in the Lochmaben, Locharbriggs, Amisfield area? 

Are you able to help support an old lady with dementia, who lives with her family in a country location, to get up mid-morning, shower, dress and get settled for the day? 

Rosemary speaks very little and is largely reclusive, but will smile and answer simple questions and manage greetings and farewells once she is comfortable around you. She is aware of what is going on around her. 

Rosemary is most relaxed when following her own routine, as this makes her feel secure and likes life best when everything is familiar, predictable and goes to plan.
