Duties include making daily checks, keeping records and assisting with general items such as prescriptions and arranging transport.  Experience of working with the elderly and health and safety awareness is essential. Preference is for a car owner/driver and a first aid certificate will be required; training can be arranged.  The post would suit a retired nurse or carer.
