Caregiver needed immediately for a 75-year-old wheelchair bound female (my mother). Primary duties would include assistance with personal grooming and sponge baths, toileting, changing compression stockings, and some housekeeping. Caregiver must be willing to learn to use Mom's sit-to-stand power lift to transfer her to and from her wheelchair. Caregiver would also take her to doctor's appointments in our wheelchair-accessible van and run occasional errands with their own vehicle (mileage paid), especially in the winter months, so applicants would need a driver's license, reliable vehicle and proof of insurance. No cooking, laundry or dishwashing required - I prefer to do that, but may occasionally ask for assistance as I am also mobility-challenged. 25 hours per week, preferably Monday-Wednesday-Friday days, but we're willing to be flexible if you are. Dependability, reliability and punctuality are VERY important.... we'll be happy to train you for everything else! This is a long-term assignment. We want someone who will become a trusted member of our extended family. Previous caregiver was with us for over a year, until she had to move out of state. Interested parties would need to apply with one of the home health care agencies that contract with county Senior Services - contact information will be provided when you respond, and you would actually be employed by the agency, not directly by us. Must pass a background check and pre-employment drug test provided by the agency. Benefits are available through the agency, and they can give you more details when you apply.
