My boyfriend is a high functioning quadriplegic who is fairly independent. We are mainly looking for someone to hang out, do light housekeeping, possibly make or pick him up lunch, run errands, and help him with transferring. He does use a slide board and does most of the work himself, he just needs someone in case he loses his balance or to help get his legs in and out of bed. I take care of his personal care and bowel program when I get him up for the morning. The major part of the job is really just hanging out and making sure he is safe, it's pretty low key most days. He does like to do his own thing and appreciates when a caregiver can give him space, without feeling like he needs to entertain or talk constantly.
