About who needs care: I'm looking for someone every Tuesday and Thursday (8hrs/day), and possibly more to help care for a 64-year-old woman with a brain tumor. There are always other people in the house helping, so this person will never be left alone to care for her. The job is mainly sitting with her, helping a bit around the house and possibly with things like bathing, etc. The house is lovely and the people you'll be working with are great. We'd consider a LPN, CNA or possibly someone without those credentials (as there are other people available to handle the medical side of her care) if we found the right person. The most important thing will be finding someone who is interested in something a bit more permanent as we'd rather not have a revolving door of people in and out.
About the care needs: Needing someone who is smart, kind, loving and gentle who will work well with others in the house and develop a relationship with the family.
Services needed include: meal preparation, errands / shopping, light housekeeping, companionship, feeding, and bathing / dressing.
