Quadriplegic seeking caregiver 3 or 4 mornings per week (some schedule flexibility available). Experience with quad is ideal but can train committed caregiver. The most important qualifications are honesty, reliability, discretion, and compatibility because of the personal nature of the work. This is not a basic companion position -- care giving requires moderate physical effort, so caregiver must be reasonably healthy. Essential care giving activities include but are not limited to:
* range-of-motion exercises
* wheelchair transfers with lift machine
* basic breakfast preparation
* light housekeeping
* assistance with other activities of daily living
This is usually a live-out position but, at this particular time, I could also consider a live-in situation for the right candidate.
