Seeking a senior caregiver for myself in my 50s. Services needed: bathing / dressing, meal preparation, help staying physically active, mobility assistance, transportation, light housekeeping, errands / shopping. Looking for someone with 3+ years of experience caring for seniors. Specialized care needs: CPR/first aid training. Female caregiver preferred. A little more about myself: I can be pleasant, outgoing, independent. I'm looking for a senior caregiver who is patient, quiet, strong, fond of pets, outdoorsy. I am a business woman and was injured in a automobile accident 35 years ago. The accident paralyzed one of my vocal cords so I am unable to speak above a whisper. I am a quadraparalytic and use a power chair for mobility but can bear weight to help with transfers with minimal assistance. After my accident, I went sky diving, water skiing, rode in a hot air ballon - so I don't let a disability stop me from enjoying life. I have a small dog (bichon / shih tzu mix) that is very loving. I lost my husband 5 years ago and have had a team private, rotating caregivers since. I need someone who is reliable, mature and professional who will be my hands, feet and voice while on the clock. I do not require constant supervision, so I need someone who knows how to keep themselves busy doing light housework. I can provide a checklist if needed.
