$16 – 21/hr
In search of caregiver for a 75-year-old male who is mentally alert with a fun personality. He is a near paraplegic since a bicycle accident many years ago, and now is further limited by arm injury. He needs help nights and weekends. Duties include hygiene care, dressing, and help with transfers using a hoyer lift. (Transferring in/out of bed, in/out of chairs, on/off electric wheelchair, etc.).
Majority of care needs occur only about every 3 hours, so lots of down time for the caregiver in between to read, watch TV, etc. In nice weather, beautiful yard and pool are available during downtime as well. Need caregiver who is reliable, non-smoker and physically able to use hoyer.
We are open to a live-in caregiver (free rent) for the right candidate.
