PFC is excited to expand its services to include providing families with great candidates for special needs senior care. PFC is currently recruiting for a Therapeutic Senior Companion in the San Francisco Bay Area. Details of the position are as follows:
Position: Therapeutic Senior Companion
Location: Lafayette, California
Hours: Full-time 40+ hours a week. The position will be for at least 3 months and will likely extend to a more permanent role.
Details: The family resides in Hong Kong full-time but the mother's mother lives in Lafayette, California. The senior recently had a stroke and was in a coma for a few weeks. She is transitioning from full-time hospital care to home care with live-in assistance. The senior has lost some brain functionality, so part of the role of the Therapeutic Senior Companion will be to assist in the rehabilitation of the senior's basic life functioning.
Duties: The family has hired someone to come into the home and cook and clean. The role of the Therapeutic Senior Companion is to assist in providing rehabilitation to improve function so that the senior can become as independent as possible. This must be accomplished in a way that preserves dignity and motivates the senior to relearn basic skills that the stroke may have taken away - skills like eating, dressing and walking.
Requirements: The Therapeutic Senior Companion must be skilled in providing post-stroke therapeutic intervention and rehabilitation. An educational background in occupational therapy, physical therapy, nursing, or some other therapeutically related discipline is highly desired.
