You can post the job in the job centre also. For those looking for a job in care. Don't dismiss this as some of the best 'natural' and able carers are looking for work at any one time:)

Having supported four elderly parents with a variety of health issues, and with an adult son who has severe learning difficulties, I know only too well that many "carers" are not worthy of the title!

In view of your mum's very high health needs, I think you should be advertising for a female nurse with formal nursing qualifications, due to mum's health issues.

Perhaps if you took your rest during school hours, there might be a qualified nurse with young children who would love the chance to earn extra money?

Thanks, bowlingbun for your kindness in making suggestions.
I am an advanced practice nurse, and former uni nurse educator, so I am very comfortable with training the carers. B) Finding a nurse professional doing this as a career is even more of dicey proposition, simply because they require much higher compensation. I would too.
all the Best! :)
Yes, that's the dilemma everyone is in. They want the best possible care for the lowest possible price, rightly so, I'm not criticising that.
However IF there is a qualified nurse in the area who cannot work a full shift, but has SOME free hours, this might be a very attractive proposition.
