Seeking care for my loved one in his 40s. Looking for someone to provide occasional visits for my loved one who lives with me. Services needed: feeding, meal preparation, mobility assistance, light housekeeping, errands / shopping. No prior experience required. Specialized care needs: CPR/first aid training, support for chronic illness, nursing experience. A little more about my loved one: he can be pleasant, outgoing. My boyfriend has muscular dystrophy and is wheelchair and ventilator dependent. He has medical aides for AM and PM. I would want someone hopefully close by that can spend 2-6 hours or be on call in case he needs something minimal while it work a little bit. He can t raise his arms to feed himself, blow nose, get set up, plugged in etc. He is cognitively intact 100% so he directs his needs. We have 2 dogs. I'm looking for someone who is patient, strong, fond of pets. Someone easy going and able to work well with him for simple meal prep and feeding assistance. Would not have to help with transfers but that would be a plus and we may have additional opportunities. My boyfriend is a great guy and has just been given a crappy diagnosis. We moved to Florida hoping we could have a few last years together. Quality of life is what we need.
