WHY DO WE SHOW EXPIRED LISTINGS?

We are in search for a long-term, live-in Caregiver for an elderly couple in Benson, NC.

Currently the couple is mostly independent. They do not need help with bathing or moving around the house. However, they often need assistance with daily tasks, as the gentleman is going blind. The couple has two dogs and a cat so an ideal caregiver will love pets.

***Candidates must have eldercare experience to be considered***

The caregiver’s daily schedule is M-F 11am-4pm and is flexible, as long as he/she is able to make the couple lunches and dinners every day. This includes serving them the meals and cleanup. It’s important that the caregiver oversea their medications and makes the couple healthy and tasty meals by following their dietary restrictions. 

Job duties and responsibilities required, but not limited, to the following:

  • Eldercare
  • Light housekeeping
  • Cooking lunches and dinners
  • Driving couple to appointments
  • Running errands
  • Grocery shopping
  • Laundry
  • Medication supervision
  • Pet care on occasion
  • Communication with family members

The couple’s home is 2500 sq ft on three acres with room for gardening or even chickens. If the caregiver would like to use the land, she or he is free to do so as it isn’t currently being used. The guesthouse (caregiver’s quarters) is separate from the main house. It’s about 500 sq. ft. 1/bed 1/full bath with a beautiful large kitchen. There isn’t an enclosed fence but the caregiver is welcome to have a pet.

Last but most important, the caregiver must be kind, patient and respectful to the couple at all times. They want to be treated with dignity as they are going through the difficult transition of being less and less independent. This is particularly difficult for the gentleman as a former war veteran and decorated hero, who served his country his entire career. DDA is going to make sure we find this couple the best caregiver who will be like a member of the family and with this couple until the end.

This position is for an individual or couple. However, the salary and hours will not increase since this is a PT position for one person.
