Seeking an energetic caregiver for my sister, aged 35 yrs, who has ALS Lou Gehrig's disease.
She is quadriplegic and completely dependent upon her BiPAP breathing machine. She can speak, but slowly as she has weakened lungs.
We are looking for someone active who can,
. adjust her breathing mask as requested
. physically hold & position her head while feeding, changing her
. help her shower using Hoyer lift, holding her head & mask in the shower
. take initiative in her care in nutrition, exercise & range of motion, managing her care when she has a tough time
We are looking for a 3rd person to work alongside LPN & HHA, so that my mother and I can resume our jobs. No one takes care of family like family, so we are seeking someone who my sister can trust with her health & safety.
Starting early January, experience preferred.
