Weekend support for Lady in St Lawrence requires help with personal care and toileting, 142917, Re-posted on 15/05/2019

About me

I am an elderly lady who lives in St Lawrence. I am an ex-Head Teacher and like to be independent meaning I can be quite particular in how things are done. I want to stay in my own home as long as possible as I have lived her for 30 years. This is why I am looking for PA's.

I had a stroke in 2010 which left me with loss of strength in both legs and my left arm, I am now only able to use transfer using a stand aid and only go from my bed to my chair and back again. I am also doubly incontinent.
I have a cat who is very important to me and I consider it my companion as we've lived together for 18 years. I also have a niece who lives on the mainland who does what she can for me.
I tire easily now so I like things to be peaceful but I do enjoy the company of others when they visit.

What I'm trying to find

I need 4 calls a day with 2 carers, during these calls ill need help to change my pads, help with meals and fluids and ensure I'm wearing my Wightcare pendant. In the mornings I'll need help with my personal care, getting dressed and supporting me to take my medication.

I already have 2 PAs who support me Monday - Friday but still require support on the weekends. I'm flexible on times when I receive my carers and I am happy to discuss this when we meet
