A nurse or caregiver with a strong rehabilitation ethic and exceptional dementia skills (10+ years). Our homecare vision goes beyond feeding, toileting, and medicating to include daily high quality physical exercise and mental stimulation. Our team provides challenging activities and complex care in the patient's home and community. Mother is highly active, humorous, compassionate, intellectual, and feisty. She mobilises by wheelchair and has fluctuating cognition. She regresses to speaking her mother tongue, and you will be expected to attend Dutch lessons and other in service training outside of your shifts.

- Dementia care experience that prioritises intervention over medication (5+ years);
- A positive, compassionate, patient, thoughtful, and humorous character to engage mum;
- Commitment to encourage mother in her rehabilitation, swimming, music, art, gardens;
