Caregiver needed immediately for a 77-year-old wheelchair bound female (my mother). Primary duties would include assistance with personal grooming and sponge baths, hair care, toileting, stockings, and some housekeeping. Caregiver must be willing to learn to use Mom's sit-to-stand powered lift to transfer her to and from her wheelchair. Caregiver would also accompany her to doctor's appointments in our wheelchair-accessible van and run occasional errands with their own vehicle, 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 a bit of 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. No holidays, and no weekends unless you need one of your regular days off and want to make up the hours! 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. Our last two caregivers were with us for over a year each, until one had to move out of state and the other had family issues requiring more of her time. Our potential caregiver would need to apply with our home health care agency that contracts with County Senior Services - contact information will be provided, and you would actually be employed by the agency, not directly by us. Our "preferred caregiver" is paid a higher rate of pay than ordinary caregivers provided by Senior Services. Must pass a background check and pre-employment drug test provided by the agency. Benefits are available, and they can give you more details when you apply at the agency.
