About who needs care: I am looking to schedule help for an upcoming surgery (first rib resection & scalenenctomy on my dominant arm).
I do not have the exact date for the surgery scheduled yet, but expect it to be sometime mid to late December 2023.
I will be inpatient for the first two nights & then coming home for two weeks of rest & recovery before returning to work & starting PT. From what I'm told, the lifting restriction, needing/benefiting from help part of the recovery lasts about 6 weeks.
I need to schedule someone to come by for 1-2 hrs daily to help with a few things for the first 2 weeks. Then, for weeks 3-6 I think that, depending on your availability, 2-3 visits/week would work.
Things you'd help me with would include stuff like basic meal prep, bringing up the "heavy"(I'll have a 4# lifting restriction) mail/grocery deliveries, helping me keep the house tidy (assistance with laundry, dishes, taking trash to the dumpster), & possibly help with some personal tasks like helping me wash my hair & put on my AFO (leg brace)/shoe on that foot.
I have 2 cats, so please be cat friendly.
About the care needs: Would love someone who's positive, kind, & compassionate.
