Family in Pacific Palisade

We are searching for a live-in couple to help care for an elderly man while providing minimal assistance and companionship to his wife. This position offers flexibility with schedules, so long as one person is available 24 hours a day, Sunday evening through Friday evening. The main responsibilities of the caregivers are to ensure the safety, hygiene, nutrition and well-being of our father. He suffered a significant stroke 18 months ago that left him paralyzed on the left side, G-tube dependent, and with significant cognitive impairments. He is able to bear weight on one foot, but requires maximal assistance transferring from bed to chair, and is approximately 160 pounds. He is incontinent and diapered. Bolus feeds through the G-tube are scheduled. In spite of these challenges, he is intelligent and very verbal, although he often confuses reality with dreams/delusions. Ideally, a patient conversationalist will be at his side when he is awake. Job duties include management and administration of medications, bolus feeding, diapering and daily hygiene, transferring, positioning and range-of-motion exercises, and accompanying the patient to appointments as needed. Our mother is independent but not sufficiently strong to care for her husband. General light housekeeping, some cooking, and assistance with shopping and errands are required, as well as exercising the family's large, friendly dog. Requires: CPR certification, First Aid, References The home is in a lovely area, walking distance to the beach and accessible to public transportation. The family will provide a private downstairs room and bath, with free access to the common areas of the home (kitchen, living room, dining room, television room, deck and garden.) Internet and cable service are provided, as well as utilities (not cell phone). Food is provided within a set budget, and the couple is free to use the kichen and laundry as needed.
