My brother is 31 years old, weighs about 230 pounds, and has muscular dystrophy. We are in need of an experienced caregiver to get him out of bed and dressed for the day. He is cognizant and able to express his needs verbally, but is nearly completely immobile.
The routine consists of getting out of bed, using the toilet, straightening up the bedroom, brushing teeth, washing face and hair, the occasional shower, getting dressed, and getting situated in a chair for the rest of the day.
Our home is equipped with an electric lift system and track throughout my brother's bedroom and bathroom, but rolling on the bed and general manipulation of the body for comfort will be required, so some degree of physical strength will be necessary.
My brother loves sports and video games, so interest in these is a definite plus.
