$9 – 12/hr
I am in need of an attendant for Monday through Friday. Shifts are available for 8am-2 p.m. and 5-11 p.m. each day. I am a 38-year-old disabled male who likes Xbox games (baseball, golf, football, etc.), watching TV sports, movies, old TV shows and love to eat and talk. My parents have 2 small dogs that are in the house but can be separated from my living space if necessary. I am a spastic quadriplegic who requires transfers for all activities (for example: to and from bed, wheelchair, bathroom, shower, chair, vehicle, for therapies etc.). I need to be showered, groomed, and shaved daily. I need transfer assistance on and off my Bidet (toilet). Meals need to be prepared, fast food and need assistance in eating certain foods. Household duties include grocery shopping, mopping, laundry, cleaning areas, help with tv and some xbox operations. Attendant needs to be strong enough to assist in transfers and positioning me in chairs, bed, and cars. I have asthma and attendant can't be a smoker. Pay starts at $9 with opportunity of $12 an hour. There will be times that I go visit family or go on vacation and service will not be needed during those times. I rely heavily on my attendants to allow me to be as independent as I can, and attendants must start shifts on time and stay until shift ends otherwise, I can be put in a health and safety predicament which is unacceptable.
Attendant is to work with other attendants to ensure shifts are covered. Attendant maybe asked to work other shifts if they are available. Must pass a background check, be CPR trained or able to get training, and be able to perform duties. These positions are funded by the state of Texas Class Program utilizing state and federal funds.
