Home health care needed to assist quadriplegic male. Patient is 6'3 and 215 lbs - please do not contact if you are unable to assist someone of this size (he has some mobility/strength in arms and legs so that helps with transfers). Ideally you have experience or training as a nurse or similar, or have worked with patients with spinal cord injuries. We have other nurse so shifts are flexible and we can accommodate schedules, as long as each day is covered. Care consists of a morning and evening shift. The morning shift starts around 7:30-9 a.m. and takes 2 hours, requires helping patient out of bed, bowel program, showering, and dressing. Once patient is back in his chair, he's self sufficient until bedtime. The evening shift starts 8-9 p.m. and takes about an hour- consists of getting patient changed and into bed.
